Gorgeous photo of the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades, California. A historic site that is now open to the public as an art museum. But it was once the home of J. Paul Getty’s private art collection.

According to wikipedia: “In 1954, oil tycoon J. Paul Getty opened a gallery adjacent to his home in Pacific Palisades. Quickly running out of room, he built a second museum, the Getty Villa, on the property down the hill from the original gallery.
