Serving Up Zero-Calorie Desserts In Our New Online Store

Dessert Plates featuring the photographs of Jo Ann Callis

Zero-calorie doughnuts and tarts while supplies last at the Museum Store! Get ‘em while they’re hot!

Much like other calorie-free foods, these desserts aren’t edible. They’re photographs by Jo Ann Callis imprinted on dessert plates. Callis’s photographs elevate decadent desserts to seductive sculptural forms, enhanced by the unexpected presentation on sensual surfaces like silk and faux fur.

These super-cute dessert plates are perfect for serving up a little after-dinner treat. They come in four deliciously realistic designs of doughnuts, strawberry tarts, lemon meringues, and cream puffs (à la Jayne Mansfield).

Find these unbaked items in the newly launched Getty Museum Store at shop.getty.edu. Our online store sells other calorie-free gifts, too, including books, jewelry, apparel, and other unique items inspired by the Getty’s collection and exhibitions.

      #ThyCaptionBe: Sword Safety

      You captioned this detail. And we’re revealing the full story now.

      Haircut gone wrong or prop sword mishap? It’s actually story of backstabbing and assassination. 

      Here’s the full story:

      Once a great Roman military general, Pompey, fled Italy for Egypt as Caesar began a civil war. 

      When he arrived at his Egyptian exile, what Pompey thought was a welcoming party turned out to be a group of assassins. (Surprise!)

      Set against a blood-red background, Pompey’s severed head rests at the feet of Caesar who makes a gesture of rebuke.

      #ThyCaptionBe is a celebration of modern interpretations of medieval aesthetics. You guess what the heck is going on, then we myth-bust.
