    The Philanthropy Philosophy of Getty Foundation Director Joan Weinstein

    The Philanthropy Philosophy of Getty Foundation Director Joan Weinstein

    Since its inception, Getty has recognized philanthropy in the arts as vital to its mission, with the Foundation as one of its four main programs, alongside the Museum, Research Institute, and Conservation Institute. From its early grants to other LA institutions to its robust, strategic, international grantmaking program today, the work of the Getty Foundation has grown and evolved since it began in 1985.



    In
    this episode, Foundation director Joan Weinstein discusses how the philosophy
    behind the Foundation’s grants has shifted alongside changes in the field, how it
    impacts art and art history around the globe, and what she anticipates for its
    future.

    A Global Story with Getty Museum Director Tim Potts

    A Global Story with Getty Museum Director Tim Potts

    From
    his childhood in Australia spent reading about the ancient world to his current
    role as director of the J. Paul Getty Museum, Tim Potts has always thought
    globally. Potts’s broad experiences as a PhD student at Oxford, banker at
    Lehman Brothers, and director at the National Gallery of Victoria in Australia,
    Fitzwilliam in England, and Kimbell in Texas have shaped his approach to the
    Getty’s collections and programs.



    In this episode, Potts discusses how he came to the museum and how the institution is using its largely European art collection to engage in discussions of international exchange from the ancient world through today.

    Collecting Käthe Kollwitz with Dr. Richard Simms

    Collecting Käthe Kollwitz with Dr. Richard Simms

    Käthe Kollwitz (1867–1945) was a prolific printmaker whose
    work explored painful themes such as hunger, poverty, and death. To achieve her
    powerful results, she employed a wide range of printing techniques and created
    numerous drawings and working proofs as part of her process. A new exhibition
    at the Getty Research Institute, Käthe
    Kollwitz: Prints, Process, Politics, showcases her working methods through pieces
    donated as a partial gift in 2016 by Dr. Richard. A. Simms. 



    Simms, born in New Orleans 1926 and a dentist and
    orthodontist by trade, is a dedicated collector of prints and drawings who came
    to Kollwitz’s work by chance. The Dr. Richard A. Simms Collection at the GRI
    contains more than 650 nineteenth- and twentieth-century works by Kollwitz.



    In this episode, Dr. Simms discusses his unusual path to becoming a collector and the appeal of Kollwitz’s art. Getty Research Institute exhibitions coordinator Christa Aube, who co-curated the exhibition with Louis Marchesano and Naoko Takahatake, joins the conversation to lend insight into Kollwitz’s working methods.

    Responding to Disaster: The Getty Fire

    Responding to Disaster: The Getty Fire

    Southern
    California has always faced wildfires, but in recent years the threat has
    grown. Both the Getty Center and the Getty Villa are situated in the Santa
    Monica Mountains and surrounded by brushland, making them particularly vulnerable
    to the increased fire risk. In October 2019, the eponymous “Getty Fire” roared
    through the Santa Monicas near the Getty Center for days. But the Getty staff
    were prepared for just such a situation.



    In this episode, we hear about the preparation for and response to the Getty Fire from Getty’s director of security Bob Combs; director of facilities Mike Rogers; vice president of communications Lisa Lapin; and chief financial officer and chief operating officer Steve Olsen.

    True Grit: The American City in Early 20th-Century Prints

    True Grit: The American City in Early 20th-Century Prints

    At the start of the twentieth century, American printmakers portrayed the modernizing world around them, from towering skyscrapers and deserted city streets to jazzy dance halls and boisterous movie theaters. Many of these printmakers were recent immigrants to the United States, and many were women—that these groups in particular could make careers as artists is indicative of the immense social changes of this period.



    In this episode, Getty curator of drawings Stephanie Schrader and the Huntington Art Museum’s Bradford and Christine Mishler Associate Curator of American Art, James Glisson, explore this topic as they walk through their exhibition True Grit: American Prints from 1900 to 1950.

    Manet and Modern Beauty: The Late Career of the Painter

    Manet and Modern Beauty: The Late Career of the Painter

    French painter Édouard Manet is perhaps best known for
    his large scale paintings like Olympia
    and Le déjeuner sur l’herbe, both of
    which stoked controversy when they were first displayed. But in later life,
    with his health deteriorating, the artist shifted his focus to luscious still
    lifes, delicate pastels and watercolors, and portraits of social types like the
    parisienne or the dandy.



    The exhibition Manet and Modern Beauty focuses on this often overlooked period of Manet’s career, from the late 1870s through his early death in 1883. In this episode, curators Emily Beeny and Scott Allan discuss key works from the exhibition and what they teach us about modernity and Manet.
