Grosse Deutsche Kunstausstellung  im Haus der deutschen Kunst zu Muenchen
The Haus der Deutschen Kunst (House of German Art) was built in a park-like setting just northeast of the Feldherrnhalle in downtown München (Munich) on the orders of Adolf Hitler, to replace the Crystal Palace Gallery which had been destroyed by fire in 1931. It was built under the direction of Professor Paul Ludwig Troost who died before it was finished. The building was completed by his widow, Gerdie Troost with the help of her associate professor Leonhard Gall in 1937. Each year the work of German artists from Germany and abroad was showcased at the House of German Art.

Offered for sale on this USMBOOKS web page is the full exhibition catalog for the Grosse Deutsche Kunstausstellung (Greater German Art Exhibition) held from June through December 1943 at the House of German Art in central München, Germany.

This Third Reich catalog is complete and in very nice, little used condition. No odor.  It is the second to the last catalog for an exhibition at the House of German Art and because of the bombing of München, few people attended the exhibition and few catalogs were sold.
The last 44 pages are advertising for things like SS Allach, Deutsche Reichspost, Mercedes-Benz and BMW, Rodenstock optical company, Ludwig Beck am Eck department store, Rosenthal and Nymphenburg Porzellan, Heinrich Hoffmann Studio, Kraft Velveeta cheese, artist supplies, beer breweries and hotels.
