It describes the problems of getting integrated into the new environment, in spite of the years that may have elapsed, as well as how their way of seeing, their colors and shapes, continue to be engrained in the tradition of the art of Spain. Just as in the many essays about exile, there is no direct mention of Latin America in this document.
