Default Getty Villa Museum, Malibu California

I've posted these before in a different section, but I thought I should share them with you here in the "architectural" section. This is one of J. Paul Getty's art museums. I apologize if you have already seem them.

saly,

Indeed very fine architecture pictures. Great pictures all of them. My personal favourite above: what a radiant vertical depth created by the reflections of the columns!

Thank you, this is the J. Paul Getty Villa Art Museum in Malibu, California. This was one of his homes he turned into a museum and open it to the public back in the 50's. It's a replica of a Roman palace where he displays mostly his Roman artwork. He has another huge museum in Brentwood (probably the richest neighborhood in Los Angeles) where he display his more traditional artwork. Both are free to the public!!
