At The Getty Center in Los Angeles surrounded by works of art indoors and out.
A tasteful way to spend a day B at the Get-TAY – It ain’t no ghetto. We sang… At the Get-TAY.
A Banquet Piece by Pieter Claesz (1630), a favorite of our food related selections is pictured above – Others are woven between photos of pristine grounds and architecture, spectacular views, and surprisingly great Pizza. Admission is FREE to see all. Parking is $15.00.
Flowering Maze over a reflecting pool — Go through it on a boat. JK, it’s just for viewing.
Still Life Tea Set by Jean-Etienne Liotard (Circa 1781).
City and ocean views are framed within 30-inch square grids of travertine — Beauty abounds.
Still Life with Grapes and Other Fruit by Luca Forte (1630).
There are endless angles to appreciate at The Getty Center.
The Restaurant (below) offers Brunch and sophisticated Lunch and Dinner MENUS.
And the Cafe at The Getty Center is located below it.
The Cafe is somewhat cafeteria-style offering convenient, prepared and cook to order food.
We opted for the Pepperoni Pizza, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio.
It (above) unexpectedly turned out to be one of the best Pizzas I’ve ever had.
Cheers to the Pizza – I’m ready to go back for IT, more exhibits and new views.
Still Life with Lemons, Oranges and a Pomegranate by Jacob Van Hulsdonck (Circa 1620).
Just a few of the 360-degree available views.
Still Life with Fish, Vegetables, Gougeres, Pots and Cruets on a Table by Jean-Baptiste Simeon Chardin (1769) is shown above, and more architectural wonder is modeled below — A photography student’s or wide-eyed explorer’s jackpot is at The Getty Center daily.
Did you know that Vincent Van Gogh’s Irises (1889) is there too?
Sit amongst courtyard fountains and well manicured trees — Nothing is out of place.
The Museum Store is entertaining in itself with its unique items for play and purchase.
We were at the Get-TAY at the right time to see one of infinity beautiful sunsets.
And A Maid Milking a Cow in a Barn by Gerard Ter Borch (Circa 1652).
Is the cow on the left looking at us? I loved its face in person and miss him already.
We saw (and ate) some thaaangs! Don’t miss it.
