In the early 1930s, sculptor Alberto Sánchez and painter Benjamín Palencia began a review the traditional forms in Spain through the templates of modern sensibilities. The Castilian countryside became the central motif of their works in their search for "pure art", creating an indigenous version of surrealism, known as the Vallecas School.
