It is surprising Dalí, after all, was happy with Franquisim unlike most of artists, who exiled.




Card signed by Dalí and Lorca.

Dalí on Lorca's killing and the civil war:
"At the very outbreak of the revolution my great friend, the poet of la mala muerte, Federico García Lorca, died before a firing squad in Granada, occupied by the fascists.

This was ignoble, for they knew as well as I that Lorca was by essence the most a-political person on earth. Lorca did not die as a symbol of one or another political ideology. He died as the propitiatory victim of that total and integral phenomenon that was the revolutionary confusion in which the Civil War unfolded. For that matter, in the Civil War people killed one another not even for ideas, but for personal reasons, for reasons of personality; and like myself, Lorca had personality and to spare, and with it a better right than most Spaniards to be shot by Spaniards."

Wiki:

"In The Secret Life (Dalí's autobiography), Dalí suggested that he had split with Buñuel because the latter was a Communist and an atheist. Buñuel was fired (or resigned) from MOMA, supposedly after Cardinal Spellman of New York went to see Iris Barry, head of the film department at MOMA. Buñuel then went back to Hollywood where he worked in the dubbing department of Warner Bros. from 1942 to 1946. In his 1982 autobiography Mon Dernier soupir (English translation My Last Sigh published 1983), Buñuel wrote that, over the years, he rejected Dalí's attempts at reconciliation."

At least this comes from Dalí's and Buñuel's autobiographies apparently.
