After visiting the MASP and the Pinacoteca, it's worth checking out the Museu de Arte Brasileira (or FAAP, as the museum is also commonly known, which stands for Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado). Its collection predominantly includes Brazilian artists from the 1950s through 1980s, including works by Francisco Rebolo Gonsales, Mario Zanini, Aldo Bonadei, Cândido Portinari, Lasar Segall, Alfredo Volpi, Ernesto de Fiori e Lívio Abramo, Lygia Clark, and Tomie Ohtake. FAAP also hosts foreign exhibits and temporary art and design expositions, so be sure to check the website prior to your visit for the current offerings. Allow one to two hours to see this museum.
