For the second one, aesthetic expression aims to criticize the political and institutional forms of society.

His name still divides the public: on the one hand, those who admire his works with devotion discovering a risky painter; on the other, those who recognize his artistic talent and his ability to move with agility in different disciplines who, nevertheless, do not forget Dalí’s love for money and his unfortunate political declarations (André Breton addressed him as Ávida Dolars, an anagram of your name that summarized your business interest).
