Neue Sachlichkeit – Franz Roh, Exhibitions and their Artists, from 1921 up to the present

How was 'Neue Sachlichkeit' understood in the 20s and from 1961 onwards?
Who are the artists whose work is shown in exhibitions entitled ‘Neue Sachlichkeit’ or ‘Magic Realism’ in the 20s and exhibitions that are more recent?
Although he was the first to use this term in 1921, Franz Roh (1890-1965), the photography artist and art critic, continued to call the new currents ‘Nachexpressionistische Kunst’. It was Gustav Friedrich Hartlaub who entitled his exhibition at the Kunsthalle Mannheim in June 1925: ‘Neue Sachlichkeit’ – Deutsche Malerei seit dem Expressionismus and giving this term public awareness and ongoing attention.

Comparing exhibitions and the shown artists related to ‘Neue Sachlichkeit’ is subject of this survey: The 52 + 58 artists of Franz Roh's list, four exhibitions of the 20s (98 artists), and four exhibitions from 1961 up to the present (217 artists).
