Catalogues of ExhibitionsCatalogues of Exhibitions

The exhibition catalogues of the years 1869 to 1931 made available in the form of digital copies here document the annual exhibitions and international art exhibitions, which took place in the Munich Glaspalast erected in 1854 and destroyed by fire in 1931.

The virtual collection was created on the basis of the holdings of the Monacensia library of the Munich Stadtbibliothek (City Library) and of the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte (Central Institute for the History of Art), and comprises more than 14,000 pages, among them numerous illustrations. Many catalogues were published in a variety of circulation numbers and editions, to take account of additional exhibits and information. The most comprehensive editions of the altogether 43 official catalogues are now accessible online via arthistoricum.net or the Digital Library of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek.

 

 

This offer is a joint project by the Bayerische Landesbibliothek Online, the central arts and humanities information portal on Bavaria, in cooperation with the Virtuelle Fachbibliothek Kunstgeschichte (Virtual Special for Art History) of the library of the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte München (Central Institute for Art History Munich) and the Monacensia library of the Munich Stadtbibliothek (City Library).
