History of the Getty Villa

This 12 minute film reveals J. Paul Getty's vision for the Villa and the Museum's collection as well as the ancient sources that influenced the site's design.

"J. Paul Getty died in 1976, without ever seeing the Villa."

"Everyone talks about how much money I make. I wonder what sort of accomplishment it is to make a lot of money."
--J. Paul Getty, 1958.
