The key innovations established in the early years of the 20th century were matured further in the 1920s and 1930s.

Surrealism continued to grow in the 1920s and 1930s, and focused on the human unconscious and Freudian theory. Significant artists to arise from this movement were Salvador Dali, Giorgio de Chirico, Andre Breton, Rene Magritte and Paul Delvaux. Surrealism spread as an ideology worldwide due to its cultural significance, and grew to become the integral expressive mode of the 1920s.
