“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.”
― Edgar Degas
The Getty museum is now one of my favorite museums. In order to get here, I took a tram up the hill side. The buildings were in light color, looked nice and clean. The pieces of art were located inside and outside the buildings. There is another Getty museum in Maibu, which I have never been to. I think I should go there sometime since I liked many paintings in here. When I looked down from the building, I could see a small garden filled with cactus. Its green color contrasts with the plain color of the building.
This huge vase from French 1889 was my favorite. It had cool details and shape. It looked awesome in the center of this room.
The Portal of Rouen Cathedral in Morning Light (1894) by Claude Monet was my most favorite so far. It was very beautiful. I like the color that he used. He had more paintings in this cathedral series, which are exhibited in different art museums. I became his fan after I saw this one.
Portrait of Maria Frederike van Reede-Anthlone at seven years of age 1755-56 by Jean-Etienne Liotard, she was pretty in the painting. This one might be the important piece since it was shown as a highlight in the brochure.
I had a good time in this museum, absorbed the art and got to know more painters. I liked paintings, vases and tea sets here. It was very inspiring to see all the masterpieces.
