This evening Carrie Pilto, SFMOMA project assistant curator, looks at the later period covered by The Steins Collect, after World War I. She explores the relationship of the Steins to the new tendencies that emerged in modern art in France in those years.
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.
