The museum, also known as the Getty Villa, was modeled after a reconstruction of the Villa of the Papyri [Villa dei Papiri] at Herculaneum. Neuerburg consulted throughout design and construction on the representation of ancient building features. Papers include correspondence, developmental designs, working drawings, and construction photographs and slides. Also included are photographic copies of Karl Weber's 1753/1758 plan of the Villa of the Papyri.
