$18,000 for the conservation of photographs by the artist in preparation for an exhibition sponsored by the Mexican Cultural Institute of New York and the Instituto Cervantes, organized by grandson Christopher J. Dallet. Robinson worked in both New York and Mexico and was an assistant to Diego Rivera as well as a 1931 Guggenheim fellow. Concerned with the social and political strife of the Spanish Civil War and World War II, Robinson produced photographs and drawings that depict the difficult living conditions of orphaned Spanish children and refugees.
