~  Magic Realism ~ Illusions ~

       Painters developed techniques to create illusionistic realism in the early Renaissance, especially by Flemish, German and Italian painters. New and innovative techniques developed over the following decades, brought to a highly polished levels during the Dutch Golden Age of the 17th Century and again in the Neoclassical period of the late 18th and early 19th Centuries. Many of these techniques were bypassed with the advent of Modernism during the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. In Magic Realism many techniques were rediscovered, specifically to portray everyday objects. Magic Realism therefore integrated traditional techniques with contemporary subject material.
