The works come from the Tate's private collection, valued at nearly $10 million. Another $1 million was given to an endowment that supports a Latin American curatorship at Blanton.

Artists represented include many masters from the advent of modernism, including Tarsila do Amaral, Lygia Clark, Frida Kahlo, Carlos Mérida, Wifredo Lam, Armando Reverón, Diego Rivera, Alejandro Xul Solar and Joaquín Torres-García.
