Este trabalho apresenta uma investigação pioneira dos encadeamentos que conduziram a formação da coleção de arte brasileira do Museu de Arte Moderna de Nova York (MoMA), buscando desvendar os fatores que levaram peças nacionais a serem incorporadas ao acervo da proeminente instituição americana, partindo da primeira aquisição em 1939 e mapeando todos os ingressos ao longo dos anos 1940. O objetivo central do estudo é compreender os processos históricos que direcionaram a aquisição e permitiram a recepção das obras por parte da instituição no período investigado, bem como os fatores que permitiram que ela divulgasse a arte brasileira no contexto cultural americano no decênio de 1940.
