Hidden Master: The Legacy of George Platt Lynes

An intimate look at pioneering artist George Platt Lynes, who took radically explicit photographs of the male nude. The documentary reveals Lynes’ gifted eye for the male form, his long-term friendships with Gertrude Stein and Alfred Kinsey, and his lasting influence as one of the first openly gay American artists.

“A loving, elegant profile of a remarkable, nearly forgotten artist.”

San Francisco Bay Times

“Illuminating and ravishing.”
