Traversing the Globe through Illuminated Manuscripts

Getty Center

1200 Getty Center Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90049

2:00pm

Embark on a kaleidoscopic journey through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance to consider how illuminated manuscripts and other portable objects—like ceramics, textiles, glassworks, gems, and sculptures—contributed to one's outlook on the world in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the early Americas. Drawn primarily from the Getty’s collection of illuminated manuscripts, with complementary loans from collections across Los Angeles, the exhibition presents stunning and at times surprising images and a range of ideas about exploration, exotic pursuits, and cross-cultural exchanges in the then-known world.

Noir: The Romance of Black in 19th-Century French Drawings and Prints

Getty Center

1200 Getty Center Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90049

2:00pm

This quest for darkened realms accompanied an exploration of new forms of subject matter, such as dream states and nonidealized representations of the poor and working class, and new black drawing materials, such as man-made charcoal, black chalk, and conté crayon.
