Several thousand works of art had been submitted for the exhibition and only a few hundred went on show. The president of the Reich Culture Chamber, 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.
This rare original of the Great German Art Exhibition Catalogue 1939 has been faithfully reproduced by World Propaganda Classics and is part of a series of historical reprints carefully selected to show how art and literature throughout the ages have been used for political purposes.
The reprint of this rare book 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.
