Getty Research Journal (Paperback)
From the Publisher:
The Getty Research Journal is a periodical that showcases work by scholars and staff associated with the Getty Research Institute and the other programs of the J. Paul Getty Trust. It offers refereed essays that focus on an object or aspect of the Getty's extensive archival, rare book, and artistic holdings or that bear upon the annual research themes of the Research Institute or the Getty Villa. It also presents a selection of short, lively pieces about new acquisitions, scholarly activities, and ongoing research projects at the Getty.
The second issue features essays by Gail Feigenbaum, Claire Fox, Sarah E. Fraser, Talinn Grigor, Karen J. Lloyd, Kristina Luce, Courtney J. Martin, and Irene Sun-Woo; the short texts examine materials related to Roman graves, painters' prices in seventeenth-century Rome, Giovanni Battista Piranesi's Prisons series, the alchemist Sigismund Bacstrom, a nineteenth-century Venetian picture gallery, Goupil & Cies stock books, the Beau Geste Press, the photography of Sam Wagstaff, and the transgressive techniques of the Guerrilla Girls. It closes with new work by photographer Ken Gonzales-Day.
