Antique Bronzes @ The Getty Museum, Los Angeles

The Getty in Los Angeles just has to be my favourite museum in the world. The size is just perfect – not overwhelming like The Louvre – it’s just the right space for a lovely day out. It’s spread out across five buildings each dedicated to a period from Classical Antiquity to modern art – an asthetes paradise. I was particularly impressed with the classical bronze section – mainly Italian bronzes of classical themes and Roman myth. I took a few photos – of course you are not allowed to use a flash in the gallery so some of the lighting isn’t up to scratch but you get an idea.
