This event has ended.

The legendary modernist Gertrude Stein (1874–1946) was famous not only for her writing but also for her art collection, acquired as an American expatriate in Paris during the interwar period with her brother Leo Stein. Gertrude Stein’s Salon de Fleurus is featured in The Making of Americans exhibition as a formative precursor for collections including the Museum of Modern Art. This lecture will focus on how Gertrude Stein’s embrace of these international artists prompted a new American modernist narrative.
