Seen daily by some of the most important diplomats on the planet, the two 14m-tall panels that make up War and Peace (Guerra e Paz), the immense diptych by the Brazilian artist Candido Portinari, are usually set at the entrance of the General Assembly of the UN headquarters in New York, in an area closed to the public.

For the first time ever, the works have left the UN to return to their origin. Following a period of restoration and an exhibition in Rio de Janeiro, they arrive at the Memorial da América Latina (memorial.sp.gov.br) in São Paulo for a showing that lasts until April, before the panels, accompanied by a hundred never-seen-before sketches and plans, go on to showings in Argentina, Turkey, Norway and Japan.
