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!
