Investigation More Bad News For Getty

An investigation by the State of California of the Getty Trust is the latest bad news for one of the world’s richest institutions. “The Getty Trust, with an endowment of more than $5 billion, includes the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, a research institute, a vast library, an art conservation program and a grant-making office. The trust has suffered a number of administrative, legal and public relations blows over the last year. A number of senior officers have left, and staff morale is said to be low.”
