Inside the Getty

by William Hackman

Inside the Getty Synopsis

The J. Paul Getty Trust is a world-famous philanthropic and cultural institution situated in two stunning locations - the Getty Villa in Malibu, and the Getty Centre in Brentwood - each of which houses collections of some of the world's finest works of art, from ancient times to the present day. Inside the Getty takes readers on a detailed tour of these two large, vibrant and lively sites - from J. Paul Getty's original museum in his home near Malibu to the seemingly endless corridors that run beneath the Getty Centre in Los Angeles; from the galleries and storerooms of the J. Paul Getty Museum to the world-class laboratories of the Getty Conservation Institute; and from the public places and programs of the J. Paul Getty Trust to the secret space and stories of this landmark organization.
