A world of art, research, conservation, and philanthropy

The Getty preserves, studies, and interprets the world's artistic legacy for the benefit of present and future generations.

The J. Paul Getty Trust is the world's largest cultural and philanthropic organization dedicated to the visual arts. Through ambitious projects in Los Angeles and around the world—including conservation work, publications, exhibitions, grant initiatives, and training programs—we work to make a lasting difference in conservation practice, art historical research, and museology and to promote knowledge and appreciation of art among audiences of all ages.
