The Nazi Aesthetic New Online Database Makes Third Reich Art Public

The "Great German Art Exhibitions" showcased what Hitler thought was the best art the Third Reich had to offer. Now a publicly accessible online archive of the images displayed will reveal the full extent of the Nazi aesthetic -- and includes details about who bought which work of art. The Führer himself was a major customer.
