(Mostly) Clothed Ladies Of The Week: The Getty Museum

Eddie Pensier writes:

Earlier this year I accompanied Blowhard Esq, brother of Blowhard (hereafter referred to as BOB) and occasional commenter Tex for a visit to the Getty Museum in Los Angeles. Despite being the sort of modernist architecture we normally abhor here at UR, I found the Getty to be a delightful place, well-organized inside and with charming, restful gardens outside.

Here I give you some feminine highlights from our trip. Personal favorites include Ter Brugghen’s bawdy Bacchante with an opportunistic little monkey; Godward’s Mischief and Repose, whose title fills in whatever blanks you might still have after seeing the languid poses, blissful expressions and translucent dresses; Pippi’s infant Bacchus getting what appears to be a handjob from Semele; and a ringer– Hals’ John the Evangelist, who looks so beautiful I had to include him here.

Mild neoclassical nudity after the break.
