Inside the Getty (J. Paul Getty Trust) 1st Edition by William Hackman (Editor), Mark Greenberg (Editor) (Getty Publications)

The J. Paul Getty Trust is an internationally renowned philanthropic and cultural institution spread over two sites: the Getty Villa in Malibu and the Getty Center in Brentwood. Each houses a museum and offices for the four Trust programs, and all are part of legendary oilman J. Paul Getty’s legacy. Inside the Getty takes readers on a tour into these two large, bustling campuses: from J. Paul Getty’s original museum in his home near Malibu to the seemingly endless corridors that run underneath the Getty Center in Los Angeles; from the galleries and storerooms of the J. Paul Getty Museum to the library and special collections of the Getty Research Institute; from the scientific laboratories of the Getty Conservation Institute to the worldwide philanthropy of the Getty Foundation; and from the public places and programs of the J. Paul Getty Trust to the secret spaces and stories of this landmark organization.

A must-have for visitors, Inside the Getty will educate and delight anyone interested in how a complex institution operates on a day-to-day basis.
