Inspiration: Getty Neoclassical Statues

9.16.2016
Lol how many times have I talked about this Valentino collection? Can't even count. I took a few photos of these statues at the Getty last time I was there. I just have such a fondness for ancient Greek art and the endless re-imaginings of it. I think when I was younger I didn't realize that the white marble statues I saw in museums were more than likely from the Renaissance or Neoclassical eras--I thought they were all from 2000 years ago. Still, there is a magic that lingers in these pieces and in the fascination that we have with the old myths and aesthetics. I put together a little inspo collage of Valentino, ancient Greek jewelry, and reimagined Medusa brooches. Also threw a little Pride and Prejudice in there because that scene is flawless.

  2. I am SO inspired by Greek art. It holds a great sense of culture that has passed yet still feels pretty glorious. Thx to Dan Brown's books that made me explore this side of the history and got me hooked.

  3. I love the Getty Museum! One of my absolute favorite neoclassical statues is the one of Apollo and Daphne by Bernini in the Galleria Borghese in Rome. Basically, the statue depicts Daphne in the process of turning into a tree... and it's breathtaking!
