Welcome to The Iris, the blog of the J. Paul Getty Trust in Los Angeles. Launched in April 2010, the blog is a project of the entire Getty community, written by curators, educators, scientists, scholars, and many others.
We tell stories about all aspects of art and cultural heritage—history, conservation, research, and more!
