The collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum comprises Greek, Roman, and Etruscan art from the Neolithic to Late Antiquity; European art—including illuminated manuscripts, paintings, drawings, sculpture, and decorative arts—from the Middle Ages to the early twentieth century; and international photography from its inception to the present day.
Even if though you may not be able to enjoy walking unrestricted through this magnificent museum you still can visit 'online' a number of fantastic exhibits.
1. The Scandalous Art of James Ensor
In the 1880s, the young James Ensor was an ambitious renegade. Dive into his subversive and eccentric world through the painting "Christ's Entry into Brussels in 1889."
2. Jeanne (Spring)
By the end of the 19th century, the painting now in the Getty collection had become widely known as Le Printemps, or Spring. But when artist Édouart Manet first exhibited it in the Paris Salon of 1882 - to critical acclaim - he simply entitled it, Jeanne.
3. Japanese-American Photographs, 1920-1940
Selected from a collection of 79 photographs that was recently acquired by the Getty Museum, this online presentation of 11 prints provides a glimpse into a lesser-known part of 20th-century American art history.
