My Day at The Getty
David and I trekked to The Getty for the final week of JMW Turner's Painting Set Free exhibit. I could've stayed in that room all day. I would love to back before it closes in a couple of days. To say that Turner was ahead of his time is an understatement. I had my nose as close as possible to each and every one of his paintings. I'm grateful to have had the experience. They didn't allow photography inside the Turner exhibit so I snapped these quick photos from the banners.
When I found out that they had a Van Gogh on display, I knew we couldn't leave without seeing it. Van Gogh is one of my top favorite artists and I could've sat in front of his painting all day.
The Impressionists' exhibit was stunning. These are some of my favorites that we saw.
Also very interesting to note who signed their paintings on the front and whose signatures (Turner) were missing.
It was a long day but a good day. We had to leave early as Tristan had to attend a Senior Awards Show where he was awarded High Honors in Art and Outstanding Honors in French. Definitely a damn good day!
