The Getty Villa houses the J. Paul Getty Museum's collection of approximately 44,000 Greek, Roman, and Etruscan antiquities. Over 1,200 works are on view in 23 galleries devoted to the permanent collection, with five additional galleries for changing exhibitions.

This is the controversial fifth-century B.C. statue usually identified as Aphrodite that the Getty is returning/has returned to Italy. There are other pieces involved in the controversy - the New Yorker did a nice article on the whole story in November 2007 which I think spoke rather well of the currently under siege Getty antiquities curator Marion True.
