Getty Museum to Display Ancient Greek and Roman Sculptures

As a result of a long-term loan and conservation agreement, the J. Paul Getty Museum will put on view 14 works of art this spring from the Santa Barbara Museum of Art's (SBMA) superb collection of ancient Greek and Roman sculpture. On view in the South Pavilion at the Getty Center beginning May 24, the special installation will feature a selection of marble and bronze works depicting gods and goddesses, heroes, athletes, and other subjects. Before going on display, several of the loaned objects are undergoing conservation at the Getty Villa, including an important over-life-size Roman statue of the god Hermes (or Mercury), which is receiving extensive work.
