David Saunders I’m assistant curator in the Department of Antiquities at the J. Paul Getty Museum and co-curator of Apollo from Pompeii: Investigating an Ancient Bronze. In 2009 I curated The Golden Graves of Ancient Vani at the Getty Villa. I'm currently developing exhibitions on Aphrodite and on a group of large South Italian vases that were restored in the 19th century. Exhibitions aside, my main research interests lie with ancient Greek vase-painting and iconography. Annelisa Stephan I'm senior Web writer/editor at the J. Paul Getty Trust and editor of The Iris. What does a Web editor do all day? She writes, creates, revises, and nitpicks text, photos, videos, and other fun stuff so that it's as interesting, accurate, and easy to find as possible, whether here on the blog, on our online exhibitions, in our visitor section, in our e-Getty newsletter (sign up!), on our Flickr stream or Museum Facebook page, or wherever else you might be looking for it.
