    About

    A fine art print of the cover for the book, 'A Little Gay History' by British Museum Press. The photograph shows a bust of the Roman Emperor Hadrian and a portrait head from a statue of Antinous. Historical sources make it very clear that Hadrian and Antinous, a young Greek male, formed a homosexual relationship. Although we know little of their personal relationship, it is understood they shared a passion for hunting. During an imperial tour of Egypt in AD 130, Antinous drowned in the Nile. Literary sources tell us that Hadrian was profoundly affected by Antinous’ death and mourned him with unusual intensity. Hadrian commemorated his beloved in huge numbers of statues, figures, portraits and coins across the known Roman world.
