Museu de Arte Moderna de São Paulo (MASP)

São Paulo's flagship museum, the Museu de Arte de São Paulo, is an imposing red concrete and glass box suspended on four concrete columns and it dominates Avenida Paulista. Inside, it's the Greatest Hits of World Art Volumes 1-10. There's a Picasso, a Gainsborough, a Hieronymus Bosh, a Goya, plus big Brazilian names like Cândido Portinari and Anita Malfatti. In short, it's the best collection of European and Brazilian art in South America - even if only around 500 of the museum's 7,000 works are on show at any given time.
