A Devilish Artwork for Halloween

Here’s an artwork from our collection that makes me squeal…with terror! The multicolored demons attacking my pal Saint Anthony are hooves down the scariest creatures around.

The blue devil is a total gangster. He bullied his way onto our new audio tour Demons, Angels, & Monsters: The Supernatural in Art. My young friends Benjamin, Bryn, Devin, Kayla, Michael, Michelle, Riley, and William are the real stars of the tour, though, with their opinions on supernatural fashion, monstrous behavior, and spectacular superpowers.

Like my costume?

For this particularly devilish artwork, feast your ears on nine-year-old Bryn’s tips for spotting the demons that dwell amongst us…right after the intro from the threatening thug.

The audio tour is fun for angels and monsters of all ages. Plus, all audio tours at the Getty Center are free through February 5.

Happy Halloween!

      Mission style or “Spanish Colonial” architecture is a California signature. San Luis Rey de Francia was founded in 1798, yet shares many of the features of Los Angeles’ Union Station. Compare with The Huntington’s capture of the station to see just how similar in line and form these buildings really are. 

      We’re teaming up The Huntington’s tumblr to bring you historic Los Angeles images on Wednesdays through August 6 as part of No Further West.
