Getty Research Institute Presents Bauhaus Beginnings

The Bauhaus was a German school of art and design whose brief yet highly influential existence rendered it a key site in the development of a new modern vision for arts education. Established in 1919 after the end of World War I, the Bauhaus sought to erode distinctions between crafts and the fine arts through a program of study centered on theory and practical experience.

Marking the one hundredth anniversary of the school’s opening, Bauhaus Beginnings investigates the school’s early commitment to spiritual expression, its innovative first-year curriculum, and its use of diverse media to introduce the work of students and masters to international audiences. The exhibition draws on the Getty Research Institute’s extensive collection of Bauhaus material—including course exercises, teaching aids and notes, and rare prints, drawings, and photographs—to offer a colorful and surprising reexamination of the founding principles of this landmark institution.

J. Paul Getty Museum Presents Marks of Collaboration: Drawings in Context

Centered on the Museum's recently acquired design for a painted glass window by Christoph Murer, this installation explores the ways in which sixteenth-century Swiss designers and glass painters communicated with each other through drawings. With a selection of five works, the display investigates how visual and textual information provided by designers, guided the execution of paintings on glass. Through close study, visitors can uncover the designer's cues and grasp how these two sorts of artists worked together so successfully. Curated by Edina Adam.

J. Paul Getty Museum Presents Pontormo: Miraculous Encounters

At the end of the 1520s, during the siege that brought to an end the last Florentine Republic, the painter Jacopo da Pontormo created one of his most moving and innovative altarpieces, the Visitation. Recent conservation has created the extraordinary opportunity for the work to travel for the first time from Carmignano (near Florence) to the United States. This exhibition presents Pontormo’s spectacular painting alongside its preparatory drawing and two exceptional portraits painted during the same tumultuous period. Curated by Davide Gasparotto.

Organized by the Gallerie degli Uffizi, the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Morgan Library & Museum.

This exhibition is made possible with generous support from Mr. and Mrs. J. Tomilson Hill, and the Foundation for Italian Art and Culture (FIAC).
