Entartete Kunst Exhibition

EVENT

Sponsored by the Nazi government, this showcase of modern art was intended to encourage public opprobrium against artists betraying any sort of Jewish or Bolshevik influence.

The collection opened in Munich on 18-Jul-1937, then traveled throughout Germany and Austria.
