Getty Research Journal, No. 14

The Getty Research Journal presents peer-reviewed articles on the visual arts of all cultures, regions, and time periods. Topics relate to Getty collections, initiatives, and broad research interests. The journal welcomes a diversity of perspectives and methodological approaches and seeks to include work that expands narratives on global culture.
This issue features essays on a scientific examination of woven-gold fragments from the late Hellenistic and Roman periods; a new attribution of the J. Paul Getty Museum’s sixteenth-century bust of Duke Ottavio Farnese to Lombard-born sculptor Giovanni Battista della Porta; an anonymous seventeenth-century manuscript on collecting ancient coins and recognizing counterfeits; two nineteenth-century photographic albums and the stock photography market in 1860s Chile; Édouard Manet’s life-size Portrait of Madame Brunet and questions surrounding its sitter and early history; architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner’s changing attitude about the work of Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí in the 1950s and 1960s; and artist Allan Sekula’s photographic projects and working method.
Shorter texts include notices on eighteenth-century cookbooks and the gastronomic influence of Huguenot immigrants in European circles; a conservator’s technical summary on the Getty Museum’s bust of Ottavio Farnese; Willard Morgan’s photographs of modern architect Richard Neutra’s Lovell House; and a handwritten, unfinished essay by critic Clement Greenberg on surrealist writer and theorist André Breton.
