São José dos Campos: Burle Marx Municipal Park with the Olivo Gomes residence

Burle Marx Municipal Park with the Olivo Gomes Residence: oil on card, 11 x 9.5 cm  SOLD


This beautiful park is well worth visiting, along with the Gomes Residence, in what is otherwise a somewhat undistinguished city (though it does contain a huge number of funny little small businesses on the way from the centre from the bus station): diminutive diners and tiny shops painted in bright colours where they repair clothes or rennovate car tyres.

I fear this side of Brasil will one day completely dissappear, as it virtually has in the UK, replaced by identikit shopping malls and chain stores.

Many thanks to Larry for taking me here.
