This is a powerpoint presentation about Magical Realism & Magic Realism Art History.
EXCERPT: OVERVIEW IN BULLET POINTS:
~ Definition of magical realism: art movement of painting in a meticulously realistic style of imaginary or fantastic scenes or images.
~ This movement is called Magical Realism (early years) OR Magic Realism (later years).
~ began in Weimar Germany, then spread to Europe and was ultimately transported to North America.
~ representational art, mixed with elements of fantasy.
~ Magical Realism creates mystery through its details. It occurs in a sterile ambiance in which mystery would normally be lacking.
~ very detailed, sharply focused and emotion fraught
~ everyday world depicted in new and unfamiliar ways with often some hidden or suggestive content in the scene. Surrealism showed the fantastic. Magical Realism did not.
~ Franz Roh coined the term “magical realism” in 1925, in reference to the hidden, mystery element in the painting.
~ The first notable European exhibit was “Die Neue Sachlichkeit (The New Objectivity).”
~ America had its own major exhibition, "American Realists and Magic Realists."
~ Andrew Wyeth was in this show and became the most successful American artist associated with Magic Realism. Wyeth's “Christina’s World” is a very well known Magic Realism painting. The aspect which is hidden is that Christina is not young. She is in her 50s. Plus she is handicapped and cannot walk.
~ Two important North American Magic Realists were George Tooker, American, and Alex Colville, Canadian.
~ Unlike the Surrealists, the original Magical Realists were called the Quiet artists. Their paintings were subtle. They hid important elements instead of being overt.
