Emanations: Gertrude Stein

3 February 1874 – 27 July 1946

An American writer, Stein became the medium for the development of modern art and literature through her salon at 27 rues de Fleurus, Paris.

Her talent – the bringing together of creative individuals from all the arts, to be challenged, supported and given opportunities for personal expression.

An early author of published and unpublished lesbian coming-out stories, librettist of 2 operas, her family wealth allowed her to support and champion the likes of Matisse, Picasso, Diaghilev, Hemmingway and Wilder, but it was her openness about her relationship with Alice she is most remembered.
