Bartolí on International and Monarchic Relations
Bartolí exposed global powers negociations with Franco. France had been a republican model for the Spanish republic, the Oct. 1958 issue after the elections of the Firth French Republic celebrates it. However, one cartoon published a year later shows the disillusion with France trade agreement with Spain and the banning of the Spanish Communist party in the country. Spanish exiles were terribly dismayed by Dwight Eisenhower visit to Spain in December 1959. To further undermine Spain’s relations with the United States, Bartolí also illustrated Ibérica’s reports about the corruption of the regime. Several articles in Ibérica covered the growing anti-Americanism sentiment among Spaniards inside Spain and abroad.
