Masp’s collection is composed of more than 8 thousand pieces, between sculptures and paintings, which alternate in the permanent exhibition. There are works of art by Renoir, Rafael, Di Cavalcanti, Botticelli, Portinari, Cézanne, Picasso, Matisse, Goya, Velázquez, Van Gogh, El Greco, Rafael, Rubens, Monet, Dégas, Lasar Segall and Anita Malfatti, among others.

Masp (Museum of art Asis Chateubriand of São Paulo) also receives temporary exhibitions and organizes theme shows. Many other activities also take place in the museum: lectures, art-school, workshops, dance, music and theater performances, as well as courses for teachers.

With five pavements and modern lines, the building was designed by architect Lina Bo Bardi, and is supported only by four columns, forming a 70 meters wide clearance where, on Sundays, an antique fair takes place.

On the underground floor visitors can find a restaurant and two amphitheaters.

Masp was created in 1947 by the journalist and entrepreneur Assis Chateubriand, and was moved to its current location in 1968.
