~  Magic Realism - Classical Influences  ~

          The influence of Classical and Neoclassical art was much more evident outside Germany than as part of Neue Sachlichkeit Nazarene art appears as an influence in the oeuvre of Georg Schrimpf. However, the art of the Weimar Republic was not nearly as influenced by the Return to Order movement as was Italian or French art after World War I. Classical influences can be seen in the wroks of some American Magic Realists, particularly George Tooker and Charles Rain..
