Aristide Maillol's "Torso of Dina" is integrated with the environment and architecture to create a dramatic outdoor art experience.
The Getty Center has been transformed outside with 28 modern sculptures donated by the late legendary film producer Ray Stark and his wife, Fran. My favorite Ray Stark flicks: Funny Girl, The Way We Were, The Goodbye Girl, and The Night of the Iguana.
A new garden art section was created for some of the collection, the Stark Sculpture Terrace, art depicting the broad outlines of figurative sculpture's move from representation to abstraction. Two famous works here are: Barbara Hepworth's "Figure for Landscape" and Henry Moore's "Seated Woman".
A week day in winter is a fine time to visit The Getty, with LA's "Mediterranean Climate" a balmy day is almost guaranteed...

You chose a perfect viewpoint for this statue, it looks excellent against the rich foliage behind, almost as if this figure is half human, half tree. Makes a very pleasing effect. I love the idea of these outdoor art areas too. Sometimes, the Botanic gardens in Dublin do a similar idea, and almost hide some sculptures among the trees. Nice to be able to enjoy such things outdoors, and of course, snap them too!
All the best
