And lucky for us, there also happened to be a Saul Steinberg exhibit on at the same time, so we got to see all of his amazing illustrations. (Sorry for the lack of pictures for this one. I was told very loudly from across the room that I shouldn’t be taking any, even without flash.)
After our trip to the Pinacoteca we headed over to the Instituto Tomie Ohtake, where there was a free exhibit all about Charlie Chaplin. From the beginning of his career to the end, it was fascinating to see how the world-famous silent movie actor became a true filmmaker, all through pictures taken throughout his life and films he created throughout his career. (Once again, no pictures allowed, or I would have taken many more.)
Not many people realize that São Paulo, best known for being the business centre of Brazil, is also a mecca for art lovers, so if you get the chance to visit, the city’s museums and art institutes are not to be missed!
