Anyone who drives along the Avenida Paulista, one of São Paulo’s main streets, will immediately notice the striking Museu de Arte de São Paulo. This architectural masterpiece rests on 4 enormous red legs, the glass and concrete box floating metres above the pavement. It is also one of the best art museums in South America.
The MASP (Museu de Arte de São Paulo) takes great pride in housing the largest collection of western art in the entire Southern Hemisphere. The works of many great masters, from Renoir, Cézanne and Monet to Rembrandt, Van Gogh and Matisse, can be admired here. The museum also displays other beautiful works by Brazilian, African and Asian artists.
