Stairway to Manet, Getty Center – Los Angeles, California

With all the photos of architecture at The Getty, I’m finally ambling towards the artwork exhibits. The centerpiece Manet exhibit was up the stairs from the main museum courtyard.

Not obvious from the monochrome treatment and the angle is the Manet-like painting on the stairs. I’m sure you can make out some kind of artwork. I determined that this portrait was painted on the stairs. It seems like a rather organic nod to a very clean-lined minimalist facility.

It took a little searching, especially without looking at a map, to find the Manet exhibit. The big sign and stair painting ultimately lead the way. Not to mention a street photography-like opportunity to document the entrance.
