The Getty: an urban retreat

The J Paul Getty Museum truly is a sight to behold. The shot above of the sweeping sky gives me the feeling that I am inside of a postcard.

Last Sunday, I went to see the Rembrandt and Irving Penn exhibits. Rembrandt and his Pupils reveals the subtle differences between Rembrandt’s style as a master artist and that of his developing pupils.

Here, my friend Roxanne gets a closer look at one of his paintings.

The Irving Penn exhibit, Small Trades exceeded all expectation. Penn, known for his fashion photography and portraiture captured numerous subjects on camera in an honest and poignant way.

A bird’s eye view of the gardens was equally inspiring.

The lawn is so well manicured, I found myself lying on the ground looking up at the rolling clouds. If you go, you may want to take a picnic on the green.

The Getty is our own lush sanctuary in Los Angeles.
