How did Surrealism Reflect the 1920's Era?
This trend reflected the 1920s era because many people would go and look at art when they were stressed. Many artist painted and created their artwork because they wanted to get a closer look at the environment around them and this also allows the artists to bring out what can not be seen or felt easily. Many also felt that it was a way to escape real life.
