Share my Inspiration.

Its late and I need to retire, but I couldn't go to bed without sharing some of the images I took today.

Friends Sally and Glen took me to visit the Getty Villa.

I had heard it mentioned as a Ranch, but I had never done any research on it. How wrong I was.

Its a stunningly beautiful expression of a Roman Villa. The gardens are just stunning, but I will leave the description to the photos.

Share my inspiration.




In 1954, oil tycoon J. Paul Getty opened a gallery adjacent to his home in Pacific Palisades.

Quickly running out of room, he built a second museum, the Getty Villa, on the property down the hill from the original gallery. The villa design was inspired by the Villa of the Papyri at Herculaneum and incorporated additional details from several other ancient sites.

It opened in 1974,but was never visited by Getty, who died in 1976. Following his death, the museum inherited $661 million and began planning a much larger campus, the Getty Center, in nearby Brentwood.
