Federico García Lorca in Madrid

Bergamín took the Lorca manuscript with him into exile—a relic of the Spain defeated by Franco—and published it in Mexico.

Mysteriously lost for decades and since recovered by the Fundación Federico García Lorca in Madrid, the manuscript is exhibited in the United States for the first time.
