I will be the first person to admit that I know nothing about art, at least not technically. I've never studied art but can appreciate the beauty of it and the sheer talent it requires. But even as an art novice I couldn't help but be amazed as I stood in front of the paintings of Van Gogh and Renoir and Rembrandt and saw up close the intricacies of the strokes and colors and textures. So much so that one of the guards told me to back up, haha.
Here is the rest of my experience at The Getty.
