An Enduring Icon: Notre-Dame Cathedral

This past spring fire ravaged the 850-year-old Notre-Dame in Paris. In recognition of the historic event, this exhibition at the Getty offers a glimpse into the history and art of the architectural and religious icon. Paintings, photographs, prints and rare books show the importance of the cathedral in European art history from its construction in the Middle Ages to its restoration in the mid-1800s.

Through October 20.
