The most popular Gay tour of the Met

We will explore some of the Met Museum's queer treasures, from ancient Greek nudes (and erotic vase-painting, on which Professor Lear is a world expert!) to homoerotic works from the Renaissance, and a panoply of modern works, some by LGBT artists, some portraying LGBT people, and some expressing same-sex desire. Tour is led by Andrew Lear, a world-renowned art historian and expert in Gay art.
