The São Paulo Museum of Art, Brazil

December 2016. Collections of classical art from the São Paulo Museum of Art, Brazil. A very dear art historian colleague who is staying in Brazil sent me this photo via WhatsApp. The paintings seem to be floating, released at last from the weight of the walls and architecture, in this museum built in 1968 (year of revolution) by Lina Bo Bardi. The scenography leaves many a museum trailing behind, to put it mildly.
