Arts & Culture: The J. Paul Getty Museums are among the top art galleries, as these venues exhibit a kaleidoscope of cultural and educational events and activities year round at its two Southern California locations. The Los Angeles Getty is the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Center, and the Malibu site is the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Villa in Malibu. The Villa in Malibu, which opened in January 2006, underwent a major renovation prior to its opening.

The Portrait of Robert Chessman (1485-1547) by Hans Holbein the Younger is currently on display at the North Pavilion of the Getty Center. Holbein the Younger was highly regarded for the intricacy incorporated into his works. Other distinguished paintings by the artist include a portrait of King Henry VIII and of Sir Thomas More. The Chessman portrait is on loan from the Maurithuis in the Netherlands up to April 22, 2007. A Getty-owned work of Holbein the Younger, An Allegory of Passion, and a painting by Lucas Cranach the Elder, A Faun and His Family with a Slain Lion are exhibited in the same area.

The Villa in Malibu is currently presenting the Stories in Stone exhibition, displaying mosaics of Tunisia that date from 200 to 500 AD when Northern Africa was part of the Roman Empire. Many masterpieces from various national museums of Tunisia are used in this extraordinary show of historical significance. Stories in Stone will be shown through the end of April 2007.

The Los Angeles site displays European paintings, drawings, sculptures, decorative arts, illuminated manuscripts and photographs of both Europe and America. The Getty Villa in Malibu has approximately 44,000 pieces of art and culture of ancient Greece, Rome, and Etruria. There are more than 1,200 works on display at any given time.
