Event Notes

× The view. The art. The history. Ann & Gordon Getty's home cannot be described - it must be experienced. Take the ultimate exclusive tour of fine artistic treasures at this iconic San Francisco home, situated on top of a hill with sweeping bay views. Mrs. Getty curated the interior of this home, originally built in 1912, complete with one-of-a-kind objects d'art. Walls covered in Chinese gauze boast Canaletto vistas of Venice as well as paintings by Degas, Matisse, and Renoir, which happily accompany verre √©glomis√© é cabinetry, George III gilt-wood armchairs, 18th-century Chinese porcelain figurines, and glittering girandoles from the collection of Hubert de Givenchy. In between sips of sumptuous wines and cocktails, be sure to ask the dedicated curators and guides about the fishbowl chandeliers, the handwoven golden fabrics, the patchwork curtains, and the small inlaid chest on the table next to the sofa. Savor the experience as you and your guests are treated to an unparalleled reception fit for royalty designed and presented by the exceptional executive curators, chefs, and staff of the Getty home. You're guaranteed an unforgettable and glamorous evening. Tour to be on October 3, 2019, 6:30pm-8:30pm. Donated by Ann & Gordon Getty.
