Adolf Hitler’s Thoughts on Art and the Opening of the ‘House of German Art’- July 1937

In Munich in July 1937, Hitler opened the ‘House of German Art’.

All the exhibits in the new building were officially approved by the Nazi Party. Indeed, Hitler himself threw out many paintings which fell short of the standard required by the National Socialist Party.

Here are three newspaper reports from July 1937 which provide a fascinating insight into this most sinister of art exhibitions.
