I LOVE the Getty, LA. They are having a special viewing of " The Women in Blue Reading a Letter"
This will only be there until the end of March. So ...of course ...I HAD to make it over to the Getty to see this beautiful painting, on loan from Amsterdam.
I studied this when I was in art school and never thought I would see it. I think that is why I was filled with emotion when I got to see it in person.It was smaller than I had imagined, still thrilling.
The light is coming from a window you can't see, but you know is there! I wonder what she is so intent on reading?
