When the Getty Center's exhibition program shifts back into gear, it will present some pandemic-delayed shows. Further out on the horizon are exhibitions on Holbein, Watteau, and Paolo Veneziano. 

"Holbein: Capturing the Renaissance," co-organized with the Morgan Library & Museum, is billed as the first major presentation of Holbein's art in the U.S. It will include drawings and paintings. 

"La Surprise: Watteau in Los Angeles" is a focus show celebrating the 300th anniversary of Watteau's death, with loans from local public and private collections. LA's museums have more Watteaus than any other U.S. city.

"Paolo Veneziano: Art and Devotion in 14th-Century Venice" will reunite the Getty's two small Annunciation panels by Paolo Veneziano with others from the same altarpiece, now scattered among institutions in Avignon, Washington, DC., and Worcester, Mass.  

Dates are to be announced.
