The Getty

My visit to The Getty turned out to be a family field trip, which I didn’t mind at all. I didn’t really know what to expect to my trip to The Getty. However, once I was there I didn’t really want to leave. Maybe it was because I didn’t get to see all the material or because I wanted to stay in the quiet rooms filled with awe dropping paintings, photographs, sculptures, and decorative art.

The museum was unlike anything I’ve ever been to. I think it was the first time I’ve ever attended a museum were there was so much content to look at. I only had the chance to see some material in the South and West Pavillions being that we got there two hours before closing.

Furthermore, I must say that the The Farewell of Telemachus & Eucharis was a lot more vibrant in person. The colors made the painting stand out in the room filled with other paintings.

The only down side to this experience, was that we attend in the night. Therefore, we weren’t able to admire the Central Garden and the Sculpture Garden. However, I was still able to get some pictures of the scenery.

 

We had all agreed that we’d be back one day, specifically during the day.
