Lina Bo Bardi, L’ombra della sera, 1965
Lina BO Bardi’s drawing, evening shadow, as it could be translated, portrays the ground-level elevation at the access to the MASP Building (São Paulo Museum of Art), in São Paulo. It shows the building just before nightfall, when city shadows start to appear, and a bright and often reddish light, such as the one in the drawing, defines, delimits, and lightens its shapes. The projected shadows of pillars and people under the huge porch are laid, representing sunset. Night is about to fall in São Paulo.
