Owner description: Elevated over a concrete platform used for concerts and a weekly crafts fair, the Museu de Arte de São Paulo (São Paulo Art Museum, abbreviated MASP) is itself a work of art; the building is an imposing Modernist box suspended under two bright red concrete supports. Featuring classical European names such as Gauguin, Goya and Gainsborough, the museum also holds one of the largest collections of Brazilian and other Latin American artists on the continent.

In general, I enjoyed the visit. Found few real masterpieces of Western art from El Greco to Monet and Degas. Strong on French artists. Small collection on display, certainly not comparable with the best collections of Europe or US.

The mere experience of walking below the museum is nice; on sundays there is a antique fair starting up at 8:30am. The fee for the museum is R$15,00 and the lines are considerable and up the concrete staircase... it didn't take us long, though. Inside, a crowd that gathers up in front of the main paintings as they do in most museums around the world. I didn't like the way they organized the exhibition, the ambiance is too dark and too small. Think Caravaggio deserved more.

I saw a beautiful Caravaggio exhibition there! Lina Bo Badi's building is also worth the time! It was built in 1947.

I had been to another gallery in São Paulo, Pinocoteca, and it was to early to go home so I decided to see M.A.S.P.
It was Sunday and the whole area in what might be termed a park underneath the Art Gallery was the site of a Flea market. I wandered and then headed for the entrance to the gallery. Since I am a senior I got free entry and ascended in the elevator.
Stepping out I was confronted by a large full length portrait of an English Lord in all his regalia, not what I was expecting in a State Art Gallery in Brasil. The remaining art was eclectic and beyond imagining, a cross between the Tate, National Gallery and Tate Modern if I had been in London. It became obvious that there are many wealthy collectors in Brasil and many of the works in this particular exhibition were on loan from these collectors, both private individuals and corporations. I spent a long time wandering looking and returning to previously viewed works.
As in most galleries the works change according to the season and MASP is no exception, more than one visit is required.
And if you are in the gallery around lunch time I urge you to dine in the restaurant within the Gallery, excellent foods and the price is conservative, an added benefit.
