Docent Lee Rubinstein takes us through the French collections at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles.
Paris was the center of the universe for a long time and the French collections of the Getty museum have the stuff to back it up! Beginning with early French manuscripts, we’ll take an art walk through the history of France. You will see portraiture, landscape and still life works by some of the great French artists including Chardin, David, and Watteau, furniture made by some of France’s finest ébénistes (cabinet makers) and decorative arts items that filled the palaces of kings such as Louis XIV. Then, moving up a century or so, we will look at Monet, Degas, Renoir and others who made Impressionism their own.
Lee Rubinstein holds dual degrees in English and History with a minor in Art History. She has been leading tours in the galleries at the Getty since 2012 . In addition, Lee runs a year-long volunteer art program in the public schools. Lee also has an MBA, but that was in a former life.
