Thank you to all those who participated in last week’s #sketchtogetherathome event! Please let everyone know, this is not limited to members only. All are welcome to join in the fun! This week’s subject is the Getty Villa.
The Getty Villa's design was inspired by the Villa of the Papyri at Herculaneum and incorporated additional details from several other ancient sites. It was designed by architects Robert E. Langdon, Jr., and Ernest C. Wilson, Jr., in consultation with archeologist Norman Neuerburg. 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.
