Among the artist’s varied iconographic repertory, Sin título (Untitled, 1935) belongs to the group of works rooted in Surrealism that illustrate the deep connection between the artist and the poetics of the Vallecas School. Lekuona introduced the earth-like materials so common in Benjamín Palencia’s works at the same time, and also gave a rough texture to the canvas by means of a procedure consisting of working on the oil paint to create grooves. This treatment was also used, from the beginning of the 1930s, by other followers of the Vallecas aesthetics such as Maruja Mallo, Rodríguez Luna and Palencia himself. The colour range in Sin título (covering the full spectrum of ochres, along with greenish browns and some greys) also places the painting among the most representative works of the Vallecas School.
