The Getty Museum

The Getty Museum

After driving home from ComicCon 2009, we decided to visit the Getty Museum, since Nathan, my son, had never been there.  Its a picturesque large museum overlooking Los Angeles; the Getty has the largest art conservatorship in the United States.  Aviva and I have been to the Getty Museum before to see the Bernini and Illuminated Manuscripts shows.

They always have a gallery with a book exhibit – this time was a collection of illuminations, which I find amazing.  Sometime I’d like to do a WordPress theme based on an illuminated manuscript theme.

There were two notable paintings in the museum’s collection that we saw:
