    J. Paul Getty MuseumJ. Paul Getty Museum Los Angeles, California
    The fabulous Getty Museum has two outstanding locations in the Los Angeles area, one at the Pacific Palisades that is located in the Getty Villa, and the other, the Getty Center is in Los Angeles, welcoming over 1.3 million visitors every year, which makes it one of the most visited and popular art museums in the nation. The center houses exceptional works from Western art from the Middle Ages to the current day, while the Getty Villa houses artworks from the ancient period of Etruria, Rome and Greece. Getty would open his second museum in 1974, to be placed in a replicated villa of the Villa of the Papyri at Herculaneum, that he had constructed on his Pacific Palisades property, and in 1982, it would become the richest museum in the world when it would inherit 1.2 billion dollars. It moved to its present locale in Brentwood, while the Palisades museum would be renamed the Getty Villa. The center that is situated in Brentwood has grown into a campus for cultural institutions that had been started by the oilman, J. Paul Getty, and the $1.3 billion center opened in 1997, high atop a hill, specializing in pre-20th century European decorative arts, paintings, sculpture, drawings, illuminated manuscripts and 19th and 20th century American and European photographs. One of the most significant paintings held by the museum is Irises by Vincent van Gogh, with a beautiful central garden, 2 million photographs about architecture and art and a research library of more than 900,000 volumes. Other magnificent paintings include; Portrait of a Halberdier by Pontormo from the early 16th century, and a copy of a Portrait of Louis XIV that came from the workshop of Hyacinthe Riguard from 1701. His amazing photograph collection houses 35,000 prints, 475 albums that contain 40,000 mounted prints, 1500 daguerreotypes and other cased items and 30,000 stereographs and cartes-de-viste.

    Los Angeles County Museum of ArtLos Angeles County Museum of Art Los Angeles, California
    this outstanding art museum is located along Wilshire Boulevard beside the Museum Row that is situated in the Miracle Mile area of Los Angeles, California, next to the George C. Page Museum and La Brea Tar Pits and abbreviated as LACMA. It is the biggest encyclopedic museum that lies west of Chicago and welcomes about a million visitors every year. The spectacular holdings contain over 100,000 works of art that span the history of art from the earliest times to the current day, as well as film and concert series that are held throughout the year. The collections are divided into various departments by region, time period and media, with the modern art collection showcased in the Ahmanson building, with the Art of the Americas building housing Latin American, pre-Columbian and American collections on the second floor and the Hammer building housing the Korean and Chinese collections. The pavilion of Japanese art showcases the Shin'enkan collected that had been donated by Joe. D. Price. The contemporary art collection is shown in a 60,000 square foot Broad Contemporary Art Museum BCAM, that opened in 2008, and showcased 176 works by 28 artists. The modern artworks would be greatly enhanced in 2007, when Janice and Henri Lazaroff donated their 130 piece collection that contains works by Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, Constantin Brancusi, Wassily Kandinsky, Pablo Picasso, Paul Klee and Alberto Giacometti; as well as a very controversial piece called the Back Seat Dodge '38 that had been created in 1938 by Edward Kienholz and is a sculpture that portrays a couple engaged in sexual activity in the back seat of a truncated 1938 Dodge auto chassis. In the Latin American art collection's Spanish colonial collection there are excellent works from the 17th and 18th century Mexican artists Jose de Ibarra, Nicolas Rodriguez Juarez and Miguel Cabrera, with galleries for Rufino Tamayo and Diego Rivera, as well as works from Francis Alys. The Lazarof collection was valued at over $100 million and include works from Joan Miro, Archipenko, Arp, Henry Moore, Willem de Kooning and Louise Nevelson. From 1946 until his death in 1951, William Randolph Hearst was the museum's biggest donor, and is still in many objects, but his main donations would form the nucleus of the Greek and Roman antiquities collection.
