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. With his groundbreaking work on the history of art, his expertise in bringing the past to life and his long experience as a scholar and teacher, Professor Lear is your ideal guide to the always exciting, often racy, world of great art.

"Interesting Tour" I think doing it online was obviously not the same as doing it in person, but I understand that's not possible right now. I did enjoy the tour, but hoped it would cover a wider variety of pieces...

"Great opportunity" Enjoyed the virtual tour, Andrew's presentation and commentary. It was just a little short and slightly different than expected but well worth it. Will happily do another virtual tour.

"Nasty Women at the Met" As always, a pleasure to follow Andrew Lear and learn from him. We began with Hatshepsut, my favorite Pharaoh and ended with Artemisia Gentileschi. A matchless excursion.
