Presented only in theatres

The American photographer George Platt Lynes (1907-1955) is considered one of the first openly homosexual American artists. A model of inspiration for Robert Mapplethorpe, it is only recently that Lynes' work on male nudity has begun to be appreciated for the revolution it represents. Explore a stunning collection of his photographs from the 1930s to the 1950s, as well as his enduring friendships with the American writer Gertrude Stein and a pioneer of the sexual revolution of the 1960s-1970s, Alfred Kinsey.
