Surrealists, sought to channel the unconscious and to unlock the power of the imagination through literary and visual artistic work.
Surrealists believed that excessive rational thinking was the reason that WW1 came about. Precisionism was a movement that also appeared in the early 1900's. It was adopted from cubism and futurism. Artists of this movement depicted the modernized landscape using precise and sharp geometric shapes, which came from the modern buildings of the period. American Precisionist artists wanted to prevent any foreign european influence in their artwork. 1920's Arts and Architecture. During the 1920's unique non-traditional artistic movements began to appear.
Some of these movements included Surrealism, Realism, Precisionism, Cubisim, the Art Deco, Regionalism, and the Harlem Renaissance.

Cubism Realism Realism was an artistic movement that began in France in the 1850s. Realism is an approach to art in which subjects are depicted in as straightforward a manner as possible, without idealizing them and without following rules of formal artistic theory. Realists attempted to portray the lives, appearances, problems, customs, of the poorer members of society. Truth and accuracy became the goals of many Realists, this meant that they drew what they had seen without any bias added. The artists simply focused on what was happening in front of them.

Archibald J. Motley Cubism was one of the most influential visual art styles of the early twentieth century. It was the first style of abstract art which evolved at the beginning of the 20th century. It was pioneered by Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso.The Cubist painters rejected the concept that art should copy nature, or that they should adopt traditional techniques of perspective, and modeling. Cubist Painters wanted instead to emphasize the two-dimensionality of the canvas, so they reduced and fractured objects into geometric forms. Photography had begun to replace painting as the tool for documenting the age, therefore artists needed a new method that expanded the possibilities of art in the same way that technology was advancing and extending the boundaries of communication and travel. This new method is called cubism. Cubism Artists included : Art Deco Movement 1920s Architecture Max Weber
