Grosse Münchener Kunstaustellung 1936
Münchener Jahresaustellung 1937
Almost everyone with an interest in Third Reich history is aware of the Grosse Deutsche Kunstaustellung (Greater German Art Exhibition) held each year at the House of German Art in München (Munich) from 1937 to 1944, but few know of the older but equally famous annual Grosse Münchener Kunstaustellung (Great Munich Art Exhibits).

Until it burned to the ground on 6 June 1931 the Kunstaustellung München was held at the famous Glaspalast. The later exhibitions were held at the Neue Pinakothek and then at the Maximilianeum from 1937 onward. Fewer people attended the art exhibitions at the Neue Pinakothek so the exhibition catalogs are quite a bit rarer than the better-known House of German Art guidebooks.

More specialized than the Grosse Deutsche Kunstaustellung, the Münchener Kunstaustellung and Münchener Jahresausstellung featured artists principally from Bayern or Bavaria. They were mostly people whose work also were chosen for exhibit at the Grosse Deutsche Kunstaustellung but some were featured only at the Münchener Kunstaustellung and Jahresausstellung.

They were superb artists like Eduard Thoney, Elk Eber, Kurt Schmid-Ehmen, Hans Schwegerle, Sepp Hilz, Paul Padua, Hans Wimmer, Hermann Kaspar, Richard Huber-Dachau, Leo Samberger, Walter Rose, Josef Wackerle, Fritz Behn, Theodor Linz, Lothar Dietz, Ferdinand Liebermann, Ottmar Obermaier, Paul Roloff, and others.

Like the Grosse Deutsche Kunstaustellung, the Münchener Kunstaustellung and Münchener Jahresausstellung showed busts of the Führer Adolf Hitler, uniformed SS men and other soldier portraits, nudes, Hitler Youth boys, still lives, the Reichautobahn, pretty aryan women, animals, old men, landscapes, flowers, etc.

In the books there are floor plans of the galleries and plenty of information about the exhibited works and the artists. In both the front and back of these Nazi art exhibition guidebooks there are pages of advertising for art materials, fine art dealers, porcelain manufacturers, beer breweries and the like.
