The Huntington is a collections-based research and educational institution in San Marino near Pasadena, with a focus on British and American history, literature, art, and the history of science from the 11th century to the present. It is on the grounds of the historic home of Henry Huntington, railroad and real estate businessman, who started the extensive rare book and fine art collections with his wife Arabella. Three art galleries (one of which is in the historic house) include such masterpieces as Van der Weyden's Virgin and Child, Ghirlandaio's Portrait of a Man, Gainsborough's Blue Boy, Lawrence's Pinkie, Turner's Grand Canal, Cassatt's Breakfast in Bed, Hopper's The Long Leg, and Church's Chimborazo as well as changing special exhibitions. There are multiple botanical gardens to explore on 120 acres that include: Chinese, Japanese, Desert, California, Children's, Ranch, Australian, Rose, and Camellia sections as well as a botanical research and education center.
