The Amazing Getty

The Getty is an astounding museum.  Or, actually two museums - The J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Center, and the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Villa. I went to the Getty Center to see a couple of photography exhibits, and discovered that two of the shows don't open until October first.  No need to worry - there are so many more things to see.  I stumbled across these marble statues of, in the back, Venus, done in 1773 and Juno, in 1776.  They are simply beautiful, and stopped me in my tracks when I wandered into this gallery.  The joy of discovery is what makes visiting museums such an enriching experience.
