Getty Museum and Florence Museo Archeologico Nazionale Partner
The J. Paul Getty Museum has announced that it has established a partnership with the Museo Archeologico Nazionale in Florence to exhibit works from that museum. The first work to be shown at the Getty under this arrangement will be “The Chimaera of Arezzo,” an Etruscan bronze sculpture dating to the early 4th century B.C. depicting the mythological beast made from parts of a lion, a serpent, and a fire breathing goat. The exhibition will also include antiquities from the Getty’s collection as well as works on loan from museums in Rome, Naples, Basel, New York, Boston, and Atlanta; it is scheduled to run from July 16 through Feb. 8, 2010. The Getty said it hoped to collaborate with the Museo Archeologico’s sister institutions throughout Italy in the months ahead.
