Renate Stendhal's Gertrude Stein in Words and Pictures recreates Stein's world. For this talk, Stendhal will focus on the artistic and personal relationship between Stein and Picasso and affinities between the two artists' work.

The Steins Collect is a guide to the personal and artistic relationships that formed the crucible of modern art. This series of five talks by curators and historians explores those relationships and describes how and why the story of modern art owes so much to that moment in history. It looks at the work of Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, and Gertrude Stein, three of the most adventurous artists of the period.
