The Getty Center of the Getty Museum in Los Angeles. The sculpture is "Torse de l'Été," by Aristide Maillol.
The title of this picture is from the sign on the pedestal for the sculpture. The tree's bark lines are similar to the torso. The Getty building itself only peeks on the sides of the trunk. The plaza is antiseptic and the natural grass and tree are contained, restrained and cleansed. The people on both sides are made to be funny little things looking more like birds. And there's an imperfection in a little branch poking up over the neck of the torso as if to say - - “not so fast Mr. Architect, museum curator, installation designer; perfection is elusive.” As for the sculpture, Aristide makes a great ass and then the art industries tell people they can’t stroke it. I promise you that when this piece sat in Ray Stark’s garden (he and his wife’s foundation gave it to the Getty), all his guests were free to touch and probably more. His Hollywood parties had all the legends there.
