This elegant publication reveals a vibrant and under-explored seam of modernist painting in Germany and Austria during the Weimar era. Although “magic realism” is a term with different meaning today, it was first coined in 1925 by the German art historian and critic Franz Roh to describe an emerging style of modern realist paintings with fantasy or dreamlike subjects. Published to accompany a major display at Tate Modern in London, also including work by Christian Schad, Paul Klee, Albert Birkle, Herbert Gurschner and Jeanne Mammen. Some nudity.

Magic Realism draws upon the remarkable assembly of German and Austrian paintings in the George Economou Collection and features rarely seen work. The introduction is called "The Interior World of the Exterior World," nicely summing up the collection. Then chapters explore The Circus: Abnormal Situations; From the Street to the Studio: Pleasurable Abundance; The Cabaret: Looking for Adventure; Faith and Magic: A Higher Degree of Reality; and Coda: From the Visible to the Invisible.

Includes a chronology, notes, exhibited works list, and index. Nicely done small square hardcover in brown cloth.
