Shady Ladies tour of the Philadelphia Museum of Art

Since 2014, Shady Ladies Tours has been lighting up the Metropolitan Museum in New York with its fascinating tours about women. From politics and power to fashion and seduction, Shady Ladies has given museumgoers the real deal about women in art. And now it’s Philadelphia’s turn.

With our newest offering—Shady Ladies of the Philadelphia Museum of Art—we’re letting Philly in on the secret that art can be fun. We don’t dismiss form and style, but we do concentrate on those things that drive so much of art: the backstories, about sex, power, ambition and scandal. As our founder, Professor Andrew Lear, notes, those galleries you think are full of queens and duchesses are actually showing you mistresses and courtesans.

In Philadelphia we’ll follow all three themes we cover in New York: “Nasty Women” who were powerful and ambitious; Fashion and Beauty through the ages; and, of course, the original Shady Ladies—mistresses, prostitutes, courtesans and seducers—who slept their way to the top. You’ll see a scene from the Dutch Golden Age of a quack doctor treating a pregnant prostitute; a portrait of Madame Du Barry, one of the most famous royal mistresses of all time; a Mary Cassatt canvas that shows clearly how revolutionary her paintings of women’s lives were; and so much more. Taken together, the works on this tour will paint a tableau of women’s lives through the centuries. They’ll give you a whole new perspective on what it means to be a woman today by showing what it meant to be a woman back then.

So get on your walking shoes and whip out your lorgnettes. With Shady Ladies of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, you’re going to enjoy a tour unlike any you’ve ever been on!

Shady Ladies Tours of The MFA

See the MFA in a Whole New Way! We all know Boston’s reputation as a puritan, stuffy city. So I guess you would expect the Museum of Fine Arts to be a conservative museum. But somehow, the MFA never got the memo. Instead, its collection is a treasure trove of great art works on some of the most subversive themes: in particular, sexuality, and women’s struggle for power.

And now Shady Ladies Tours is coming to Boston to let you in on the secrets. For two years, Shady Ladies has been setting New York ablaze with its tours of the Metropolitan Museum, telling people the fascinating backstories that bring the museum to life. Now it comes to Boston to show you a whole new side of the MFA.

On this tour you’ll see ancient Greek women, from goddesses to courtesans, a Roman priestess, and some ancient murderesses as well. There are some fascinating possessions of Marie Antoinette (a woman who reached for the stars and lost her head), as well as a bust of Cleopatra (the original femme fatale). And from the 18th century onwards, portraits that show women who broke barriers, smashed stereotypes and generally behaved in a way that some thuggish types might describe as “nasty.”

Shady Ladies tours are different from standard museum tours. We focus on the gripping stories that other tours ignore—while also paying due respect to those serious formal questions that make up the history of art. Once you’ve toured the MFA with us, you’ll see art—and possibly women—in a whole new light. Book your tour today, and learn just how fresh and exciting an art museum can be!

Fashion & Beauty Tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art

How do we present ourselves to the world? If you’ve never thought much about that question, you certainly will after this tour. That’s because you’ll learn about some of the most fascinating, bizarre and painful things people have done throughout history to look impressive, alluring and downright stunning. Welcome to Fashion and Beauty at the Met!

This tour is about everything glamorous. From the grand hairdos of Imperial Rome to the outrageous wigs of the court at Versailles; from gold ear spools in pre-Columbian America to neck rings in Africa and Southeast Asia; and from three hundred years of torturous corsets to three thousand years of gorgeous cosmetics, the history of fashion is on dazzling display at the Met. We’ll look at fashion from head to toe, as well as inside out. (Just what did Victorian women wear underneath those giant hoops?) And we’ll look at men, too—with their powdered wigs, white makeup, foppish ruffs and of course those ridiculous codpieces.

As always on a Shady Ladies tour, we’ll go beneath the surface to get to the real story: the political, social, and even medical currents that shaped fashion and how it changed. Why did French courtiers wear foot-high wigs in the 17th century? Were beauty spots really used to cover up syphilis? And how did bicycles affect the way women dressed in the closing years of the 19th century? On this fun and informative tour you’ll find out the answers to these and many more fascinating questions about fashion and beauty. Above all, we’ll come to see that fashion is one of art’s biggest topics—not only for what it tells us about changing standards of beauty, but also for what it reveals about the astonishing lengths to which people will go to attain it.

So come enjoy the beauty of the Met’s stylish sitters—and learn how the obsession with beauty is as old as civilization itself…
