Work by Maruja Mallo, reflecting one of the characteristics of the Vallecas School - its interest in the land and landscape.

The artist, Maruja Mallo, is one of the most interesting figures in the Spain scene during the 20th century. She was lively, creative and modern, and belonged to a generation of intellectuals starting in 1927, which peaked during the 2nd Republic in Spain. In this work she replaced colour with the presence of elements that refer to geology and nature: stones, bones, elements belonging to nature.
