The pandemic scrambled museum exhibition schedules, especially in Los Angeles. One apparent casualty was a major William Blake exhibition that the Getty co-organized with the Tate. It ran in London Sep. 2019 to Feb. 2020 before lockdown prevented its travel to L.A. "William Blake: Visionary" is now back on the Getty Center schedule for Oct. 17, 2023, through Jan. 14, 2024.
The Getty is also organizing a Giacomo Ceruti exhibition with Fondazione Brescia Musei. Ceruti is admired for hyperreal paintings of 18th-century society's outcasts. (The Getty bought two still lifes by the artist last year.) "Giacomo Ceruti: A Compassionate Eye" will run July 8 to Oct. 29, 2023.
