A long-term exhibition of the museum’s collection.

Before moving to Brazil, Lasar Segall (1889, Vilnius, Lithuania – 1957, São Paulo, Brazil) lived in Germany between 1906 and 1923, where, by adhering to the aesthetics of the vanguard, he defied traditional artistic languages. After moving to Brazil, Segall joined the nascent modernist movement as one of its chief figures and became established as one of the great names of Brazilian modern art. During his artistic career, he wrote and published texts, gave conferences and, above all, painted, engraved and sculpted incessantly.
