Constructed between 1933 and 1937 to the design of architect Paul Ludwig Troost, the Haus der Deutschen Kunst ("House of German Art") was the Third Reich's first monumental structure of Nazi architecture and propaganda. The inaugural exhibition titled the Große Deutsche Kunstausstellung ("Great German art exhibition") was intended as an edifying contrast to the modern art on display in the concurrent Degenerate art exhibition in Munich.
