How did WW1 and it's aftermath influence the arts? What events/ experiences inspired artists new approaches? What changes occured in painting, music, and lit.?
The Lost Generation I believe they were called were a gropu of soldiers that wrote after the war. I think during this time artists paintd unrealstic things or they painted obscure things I'm not sure. After the war didn't jazz come into play? I need help because this is all I got and I need to write a paragraph at least for my answer.
Check this site about the Lost Generation.

WWI exposed Americans to European culture. Jazz became more popular here, while a few African-Americans found that there was much less prejudice in Europe during the 20s. Expatriate artists enjoyed immense popularity in Paris, especially.
