About :
All tours are led personally by Professor Andrew Lear, a leading scholar on the history of sexuality and a master guide. With a B.A. from Harvard and a Ph.D. from UCLA, Professor Lear is one of the foremost experts on the erotic in Greek and Roman art. His book on Greek vase-painting won widespread praise for its erudition and accessibility, and was hailed by the American Journal of Archaeology as “destined for Classic status.” First and foremost, however, Professor Lear is a teacher. He prides himself on his ability to make high culture accessible to everyone, honed through years of teaching at Columbia, NYU and Harvard—where he won the Harvard Certificate for Excellence in Teaching four times.

“Informative and wonderful feminist-minded Met tour” I am typically someone who abhors tours and guides, but this was very worthwhile. Professor Lear has a great deal of breadth and depth given his Classics background. Found him to be humorous, informative, provocative, and wonderful. Enjoy!
