Getty Museum

The J. Paul Getty Trust is the world’s largest cultural and philanthropic organization dedicated to the visual arts. The online collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum comprises Greek, Roman, and Etruscan art from the Neolithic to Late Antiquity; European art—including illuminated manuscripts, paintings, drawings, sculpture, and decorative arts—from the Middle Ages to the early twentieth century; and international photography from its inception to the present day. The museum’s archive promotes knowledge and appreciation of art among audiences of all ages throughout the world.

The museum seeks to inspire curiosity about, and enjoyment and understanding of, the visual arts by collecting, conserving, exhibiting and interpreting works of art of outstanding quality and historical importance.
