As reconstruction gets underway, the J.Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles is mounting an exhibition showcasing the beauty and cultural significance of Notre Dame. An Enduring Icon: Notre-Dame Cathedral will be on display in the East Pavilion from July 23 through October 20 and will present paintings, engravings, and rare books that celebrate eight centuries of Notre-Dame and its influence.
“The recent fire at Notre-Dame reverberated around the world, with millions of people watching the event unfold live on their screens,” says Timothy Potts, director of the J. Paul Getty Museum. “We thought it appropriate at this moment to illuminate the artistic and cultural impact that Notre-Dame has played in European history, drawing on the rich holdings of the Museum and the Getty Research Institute.”
