RARE NAZI WEHRMACHT & CIVIL ISSUES OF KUNST DEM VOLK MAGAZINE
Both the small (Wehrmacht) and the large (civilian) issues of the
Third Reich art magazine Kunst dem Volk April 1943.
Both the small (Wehrmacht)
and the large
of the magazine
Kunst dem Volk
for April 1943
WEHRMACHT ISSUE APRIL 1943
This is a rare 5 x 7 inch miniature special edition of the magazine Kunst dem Volk published for Hitler's birthday, 20 April 1943 by Professor Heinrich Hoffmann of Munich. With the Jan Vermeer van Delft painting on the front cover, except for its small size, it looks just like the standard version of the magazine shown next to it. It has 48 pages whereas the standard issue has 56 pages, and the Wehrmacht issue concentrates much more heavily on full-page photographs and less on text.
Because it is the Führer's birthday issue there is a substantial article at the end called "Artists's Views of the Homeland of the Führer" illustrated with a number of excellent color renderings of Braunau, Lambach, Leonding, Fischlham and other places where Hitler and his family originated. Other content includes nudes, still lives, scenery and the famous Karl Truppe painting of Hitler.
CIVILIAN ISSUE APRIL 1943
The civilian or standard edition of Kunst dem Volk was much larger, about 9 x 12 inches, and contained more art and articles. It has a frontispiece featuring an artistically enhanced photograph of Adolf Hitler by Heinrich Hoffmann.
There is then a big article on the art selected for the new National Gallery in Linz, another on German museums in wartime, and finally the article mentioned above on "Artists's Views of the Homeland of the Führer". The color reproduction of the Hitler material is vastly superior in the civilian magazine to that reproduced in the Wehrmachtsausgabe or military edition.
We offer these two rare April / May 1943 Kunst dem Volk magazines only as a pair.
Good used condition.
