The three volumes in this handsome boxed set provide a visual tour of the treasures at the Getty Center, from the masterpieces found in the galleries to the monumental architecture to the breathtaking gardens. In the pages of Seeing the Getty Collections at the Getty Center, dazzling details from the J. Paul Getty Museum's collections are brought together in unexpected and imaginative pairings. Seeing the Getty Center features images of the tram snaking up the hill to the Center, outdoor shots with the ocean and Los Angeles skyline in the distance, and plays of light and shadow on the travertine exterior. Seeing the Getty Gardens contains close-up shots of the many different plants and flowers found in the gardens and images showing their interaction with the surrounding architecture, plus a stunning view of the Center at sunset.
Available for the first time as a set, these lovely books provide a memento for guests and an inspiring introduction for those who have yet to visit the Getty Center.
