Orazio Gentileschi

Hi from Los Angeles!

On my latest trip west, I had a few hours to pop into the Getty Museum. In particular, I wanted to see these  paintings by baroque artist Orazio Gentileschi. "Danae", (circa 1621) on the right, was recently acquired by the Getty for $30.5m. "Lot and his Daughters" is the work at the left.

A little art history- a Genoa nobleman commissioned 3 paintings from Gentileschi for his 'home'. The third painting in this group remains in a private collection. Now that these two hang side-by-side, both paintings become more luminous and feel more important together. Truely, art for the ages.
