Getty Museum Acquires a Bronze Vase by Jean-Désiré Ringel d’Illzach

LOS ANGELES, CA.- The J. Paul Getty Museum announced the acquisition of a nine-foot bronze vase by the French sculptor Jean-Désiré Ringel d’Illzach (1847-1916) that was exhibited at the 1889 Universal Exposition in Paris, the 1893 World Columbian Exhibition in Chicago, and the 1910 Universal Exposition in Brussels. “The acquisition of this monumental vase is an inspirational addition to the Getty Museum’s permanent collection, it’s scale and audacious ambition bringing a new focus to our 19th-century Belgian and French paintings and sculptures, as well as our collection of Roman antiquities at the Getty Villa,” said
