1938 Munich Day of German Art
Lot 97
“The Day of German Art” privately issued souvenir postal card for the art exhibition in the Miinchen House of Art. The special postmark was used on 10 July 1938 in Miinchen only.

10 July 1938
This special souvenir postal card depicts the head of the Bamberg Rider, a life-size equestrian statue in Bainberg Cathedral. It was carved in 1240.
The magnificent statue of a youth astride a horse is thought to represent Emperor Constantine (only symbolically; it is not a portrait). An expert in National Socialism stated, “In the whole field of art, there is nothing to equal the equestrian statue of the Rider of Bamberg . . . which represents the ideal of German youth.”
