Tuesday, October 17, 2017
Start Time: 1:30 PM
End Time: 3:00 PM
Gertrude Stein was an American author and poet best known for her modernist writings, extensive art collection, and literary salon in 1920s Paris. For over 40 years, her apartment at 27 Rue de Fleurus was a renowned Saturday evening gathering place for both expatriate American artists and writers and others noteworthy in the world of avant-garde arts and letters, most notably Pablo Picasso. Entree into the Stein salon was a sought-after validation, and Stein became combination mentor, critic, and guru to those who gathered around her. In this Senior Session, Betsey Means of WomanLore takes us to one of those salons in 1935 and introduces us to her creative friends.
