Los Angeles | Private Tour of The Getty Center with Ellen Greenberg

March 15 | 11:00 am 12:30 pm

Demystify Art at The Getty Center

Enjoy walking through time from the Middle Ages to the early 20th century and “peek behind and beyond the canvas” as Ellen Greenberg, art historian, guides you through the spectacular collection at The Getty Center in Brentwood. You’ll see the highlights of the museum and be wowed and amazed with the stories she’ll tell you about how artists have impacted history and yet still relate to our current, everyday lives. Be titillated by Titian. Baffled by Bernini. Rembrandt revealed. Monet mastered. Van Gogh verified. These are among the groundbreaking artists that will be featured on the tour. In this 90-minute tour, find out why there are so many nudes in Renaissance Art— and so many dead bugs, wilted flowers and skulls in Dutch paintings! And why is the Virgin Mary always depicted wearing red and blue during the Renaissance and Baroque periods? What were the inspirations for Impressionism? You’ll never look at art the same way again!

Your guide will be Ellen Greenberg. Ellen’s interests and expertise have been inspired by interior design, fashion design and production and costume design in her early years to museum touring and unique travel journeys as owner of Quick Culture. Ellen has been an instructor at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising and has guest lectured at UCLA. She holds Docent Program certificates at both The Getty Center and LACMA—and is the author of Inside Chocolate, a pictorial art book published by Abrams Books (formerly Harry N. Abrams) New York. Notables Ellen has toured range from Merrick Garland, United States Attorney General, to Max Getty, J. Paul Getty’s great-grandson. Her studies continue at The Getty Research Institute.

This tour will depart from the Museum Atrium Entrance.

Please Note: The fee to park at The Getty Center is $25.
