Extra Credit – Getty Center

This weekend I visited the Getty Center in Westwood. At the Getty I saw The Farewell of Telemachus and Eucharis by Jacques-Louis David. David painted this image in the year 1818. I learned that this painting was inspired by a French novel based on characters from Homer’s Odyssey. Telemachus is actually Odysseus’ son and he actually breaks up with Eucharis in order to go on a quest to search for his father, Odysseus. I had a good time at the Getty, riding up the tram you cold see many beautiful Bel Air homes sitting on the other side of the 405 freeway; The view over all of Los Angeles is beautiful.
