• From the artist's estate.
• In 1974 part of the comprehensive exhibition at Kestner-Gesellschaft, Hanover.
• After he had been defamed by the Nazis in the 1930s and a thirteen year long occupation ban, Dexel had his artistic comeback not before the 1960s.
• His urge to create art soon won over his theoretic research efforts on the history of the form
