    I've been to the Met a million times but never experienced it like this! The Nasty Women tour was absolutely fabulous! The charming Professor Lear was so interesting and really brought the art to life with his knowledge....

    I loved the different perspectives of women in art - women being celebrated (the fertility statue), Medusa morphing from the grotesque to the seductive, mysoginist Picasso having to treat Gertrude Stein, his patron, differently and Adelaide Labille Guiard's pointed message to the French Academy. Just terrific!

    I absolutely loved our guide: he was perrsonable, funny, and extremely knowledgeable. I’ve been in a lot of tours in my 48 years and this guy has more general art history knowledge than the vast majority of guides Ive had, and this is a high bar considering that I’ve taken some tours with museum curators. I loved the alternate perspective on Cassat! There’s no chance I would be thinking of her as a feminist who showed women doing things (rather than as display pieces) without his perspective. There were pieces from so many cultures. I would have loved to have the tour as a whole have a more cohesive narrative thread. I get that the thread was “nasty women”. I just think that I’d hang on to more had the works we saw been attached together more firmly. Even so, lovely tour, and I’m glad I went.
