Guignard School carries the ideal
of our master in drawings and colors.
A resplendent lesson in greatness and courage.
Now, resting between the mountains he once loved,
coming from years in the basement, it wants to be free, open and happy.
And to tell the story of an enchanted painter
who led Minas Gerais to sing of art.
