In Focus: Making a Scene

In Focus: Making a Scene presents more than thirty tableaux, or staged photographs, from the J. Paul Getty Museum’s world-renowned photography collection, on view at the Getty Center (Los Angeles) from June 30–October 18, 2009. …Among the nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century selections are tableaux vivants, or living pictures, such as… Lewis Carroll’s Saint George and the Dragon, inspired by the popular Victorian pastime of dressing up and posing to resemble famous works of art or literary scenes.”
