Years before he became a collector of ancient art, J. Paul Getty visited William Randolph Hearst at his San Simeon estate. In this lecture, Hearst Castle historian Victoria Kastner explores the relationship between these two iconic California collectors, paying particular attention to Hearst's collection of antiquities and the influence San Simeon may have exerted on Getty's taste for Classical art and architecture.
