Jean Paul Getty

This video describes Jean Paul Getty’s brief biography, his early beginnings as an art collector and patron for the arts. Getty founded one of the most prosperous oil companies in the United States, Getty Oil Company, and became the wealthiest American at the time. Getty collected art and antiques which later became the foundations of the Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. He established the J. Paul Getty Trust in 1953, the wealthiest art institution in the world which currently supports the J. Paul Getty Museum, The Getty Foundation, the Getty Institution and The Getty Conservation Institute. A major endowment for the arts worldwide, one of its best examples is the upcoming Pacific Standard Time initiative, presenting this year a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles. Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA will  take place from September 2017 through January 2018 at more than 70 cultural institutions across Southern California.
