If you ever have a chance to go at night, it's magical. Yes, I will border on cheesy because I mean it. Magical.
An aside for art museum enthusiasts: I feel at home in museums. Seeing familiar works are like seeing old friends. I saw this painting for the first time and without much hesitation or consideration I thought "Picasso." Something about the eye and the coloring. Nope. It was a Cezanne, which pleasantly surprised me and made a whole lot more sense considering the treatment of the textile. I'm always happy to be wrong, and it's especially fun for me to see artists overlap in styles. I wonder whether and how much their art was influenced by the other. That's one aspect of the Modern era that I love- you see artists go from realism to impressionism to fauvism to cubism and beyond, trying their hand at every avant-garde art movement. It's like a game I play when I go into a museum- I try to guess who the works of art were created by, and it makes being there even more fun when you see an early or late work by a prominent artist that throws you off. Try it sometime! The image on the right is rough-cut travertine on the interior of the West Pavillion of the Getty... I love how warm and lovely the natural light makes it look.
