The Getty Museum offers a nice--though not too extensive--selection of most outstanding and highly important European artists of the 18 and 19 century. Impressionists like Vincent van Gogh, Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir --to name but a few--are being exhibited and visitors are even allowed to take pictures of the paintings (however without flesh). Art-aficionados and those with an interest in art saunter through a modern and tall building which is thoroughly permeated with light and are able to enjoy the Los Angeles skyline view from the museum's extensive patios. The gallery offers ongoing and changing exhibitions, furthermore it displays photographs, ancient furnishing items, sculptures, modern art and light installations.
