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.

MASP fully accessible by both bus and metro, with permanent and temporary exhibitions with great excellence! Every Tuesday at MASP entry is free to all visitors. The full ticket costs R$ 15.00 and entitles you to visit all the exhibits on display on the day of the visit! Students, teachers and retirees vouchers to pay R$ 7.00 (half price). Be sure to read some books from the library!
Children under 10 and above 60 years of age do not pay admission. Enjoy and take some photos of Avenida Paulista. very worthwhile!

Passeio barato que agrega conhecimento.

Masp totalmente acessivel tanto por metro como onibus,com exposições permanentes e temporárias com muita excelencia! Toda terça-feira a entrada no MASP é gratuita a todos os visitantes. O ingresso integral custa R$15,00 e dá direito a visitar todas as exposições em cartaz no dia da visita! Estudantes, professores e aposentados com comprovantes pagam R$7,00 (meia-entrada). Não deixe de ler alguns livros da biblioteca!

“Surprisingly strong collection”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

I liked this gallery, although typically for Sao Paulo it has no café and the public space below the building was a bit of a wasteland. When we visited they had European art on the second floor and a collection of mainly Brazilian prints on the first. The European pictures started with French impressionists and ran the gamut through to abstract expressionism, although there was also a special exhibition of religious works (madonnas). It includes a collection of portraits that I'm sure the National Portrait Gallery in London would like to get hold of (I liked the Holbein of Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey). There are works by Botticelli, Degas, Renoir, Van Gogh, Modigliani, Matisse, Picasso, Monet, Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Constable and Gainsborough. These were frequently lesser quality works by these artists, but there were some very good pieces that more than justified the 7 reals entry fee. Highlights were an atmospheric park scene by Van Gogh in swirling brown tones and a remarkably different Monet (the canoe on the Epte) in deep green and pink. If you like print-making, the first floor had beautiful prints by Brazilian artists. The names were unfamiliar to me, but I was impressed by works by Manézinho Araújo, Jorge Mori, Arthur Luiz Piza and Gilvan Samico.

“Impressionist Gems Hidden São Paulo”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

Take the mandatory lift to the top floor and the door opens on a Premier Class exhibition of European Impressionist painters, from Manet to Monet, Renoir and Van Gogh. Great works rarely if ever seen outside Brazil. A must if you are in São Paulo
