On July 18, 1937, the first annual German Art Exhibition opened at the House of German Art in Munich. Exhibited were artists selected by Hitler.
More then 16,000 works had been submitted for the first exhibition. 600 of these went on show. Some of the works are listed in this exhibition catalogue. The president of the Reich Culture Chamber, the painter Adolf Ziegler, supervised the selection of paintings, while the sculptors Arno Breker and Josef Wackerle were responsible for the sculptures. There were no formal criteria. The selection was based on Hitler's taste and on that of the judges.
Participation in one of the Great German Art Exhibitions became almost indispensable for an artist's reputation. The official arts magazines and general press reviewed almost exclusively artists who had been exhibited in the Munich show.
This reprint of the exhibition catalogue will be welcomed by scholars of the period as an indispensable primary source offering a valuable perspective on the formation and development of Nazi ideology.
