The Northeast Sights

Oficina Cerâmica Francisco Brennand

Updated 04/29/2013

Fodor's Review

In the old São José sugar refinery, this museum houses more than 2,000 ceramic pieces by the great (and prolific) Brazilian artist Francisco Brennand. Having studied in France, he was influenced by Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró, among others, and his works also include paintings, drawings, and engravings. About 15 km (9 miles) from Recife Antigo, the museum's location amid forests and fountains is almost as appealing as its displays.

Oficina Cerâmica Francisco Brennand Review

One of the greatest and most original Brazilian artists, world class ceramics in a beautiful setting. Definitely not to be missed, however short your stay in Recife/Olinda.
