Quick Reference

A style of painting popular in Europe and the USA between the 1920s and 1940s, with some followers in the 1950s, it occupied a position somewhere between Surrealism and Photorealism—photographic realism was mixed with flat tones, ambiguous perspectives, and strange juxtapositions. The term was introduced by the art historian Frank Roh in his book Nach-Expressionismus: Magischer Realismus (1925).
