Part of the collection of it is sheltered by the Helmut Gershaim Collection Austin Texas University, the San Francisco, California Cultural Foundation and the Institute of Culture of Veracruz. By the academic training of it and by the critical sense of the time, the origins of Grobet's work are intimately related to contemporary painting. She was a student of the artists Mathias Goeritz, Gilberto Aceves Navarro and Katy Horna, among others, whom she considers her the main influence of her, along with the legendary fighter the saint, the masked silver. Much of the photographic work of Lourdes Grobe is signant by transgression, humor and provocation.
