The 1920s and 1930s saw continued development and evolution of the key innovations of the primary years of the twentieth century.

It was also a time of recovery and introspection after the horrors of the First World War, which saw important shifts in the political world.

Surrealism advanced throughout the 1920s and 1930s, with a focus on the human unconscious - a essential idea of Freudian theory.
