J.Paul Getty Museum
A unique experience of world art history in Los Angeles.

Los Angeles, USA, North America

J. Paul Getty started collecting already in his childhood. Noncomformist by nature, Getty took calculated risks in both business and art. His desire to increase the public’s access to art would lead him to turn the museum he started in his ranch house into the world’s largest cultural institution dedicated to the visual arts. The J. Paul Getty Museum is divided into two campuses: the Getty Center and Getty Villa. The Center is located in Brentwood and features Western art from the Middle Ages to the present. It’s location on a hill makes the view of Los Angeles as worthwhile to visit as the collection inside. In addition, the museum’s sculpture collection is displayed on terraces and in gardens including the large Central Garden designed by Robert Irwin. The Getty Villa is in Malibu and features art from ancient Greece, Rome, and Etruria.More information here:http://www.getty.edu/museum/
