Download Over 325 Free Art Books From the Getty Museum via Open Culture

May 28th, 2019 Comments off
Another, great, free, online resource for the art lovers among us. I can say I have flipped through many of these books at the Getty over the years so it will be great to finally spend some leisurely time  reading and viewing them. — Douglas
 

In 2014, Getty Publications announced the launch of its Virtual Library, where readers can freely browse and download 325 art books from the publisher’s backlist catalogue. The Virtual Library consists of texts associated with several Getty institutions. Readers can view extensively researched exhibition catalogues from the J. Paul Getty Museum, including Paul Cézanne’s late-life watercolours, when the painter raised the still life to a high art (Cézanne in the Studio: Still Life in Watercolors, 2004), as well as the woefully underappreciated Flemish illustrations of the 15th and 16th centuries (Illuminating the Renaissance: The Triumph of Flemish Manuscript, 2003).

The collection also contains detailed treatises on art conservation from the Getty Conservation Institute, and scholarly works from the Getty Research Institute, both of which include a multitude of books on specialized topics. Fancy reading about the relationship between Peter Paul Rubens and Jan Brueghel the Elder, the two legendary 17th century painters who lived in the Netherlands’ city of Antwerp? There’s a book on that.

Walking to an appointment I looked up as I waited at a crosswalk and caught this quintessential Los Angeles scene — blue sky, sharp sun, palm trees and architecture.

@gogojosephw and I stopped by Little Tokyo to pick up some of our favorite groceries the other day in the way home from Cal Poly Pomona. 
I turned around and saw this scene and automatically took a picture. There was something about being someplace unique and different while also seeing a plane take folks new and different places that made me stop and think for a moment. This is one of those photos that you have to grab quickly or the moment is gone.
