For our museum trip I chose the Getty. The Getty my favorite museum in this area, it’s one of the few places in the area in which you can see Renaissance Era European art, and it’s only about an hour per trip.
Of the exhibits there my favorite is the one dedicated to the pre-revolution french art. Boroque and Rococo art is the most gaudy art style out of any period of art, eclipsing even that of exploration era Spanish art. In addition to this is my favorite painting by Rembrant, which my wife and I always comment about it’s similarity to Woody Herelson.
The garden has gone through major renevations since the last time we were there, as they have replaced most of the grass with what appears to be decomposed granite. signs around the area indicate that the drought is the reason for the renovations. I understand the need to become more water friendly, it’s just a bit sad to see the beautiful area they have turn into a granite pit.
