We spent another day enjoying art and culture yesterday. This time it was the Getty Museum. I hadn't been there since the year it first opened. It's another gem of L.A. It's a nice feeling to so easily get overloaded on Monet, Van Gough, and Rembrandt. One thing I always look for in paintings and sculptures is some sort of furry element. It's somewhat easy in classic paintings since mythology is a common theme. There's always a satyr running around somewhere. Even in religious paintings there are frequently sexy demons tormenting some saint. Here are 3 pics of various pieces of art which caught my fancy.
A cheetah sculpture in the statue garden of the Norton Simon
An anthro Hindu god
A painting of a bunny. What was interesting was that it was just a picture of the bunny. Wildlife paintings were pretty rare.
