Seeing Gertrude Stein

Living in Paris during the 1920s, Gertrude Stein held court with some of the Jazz Age's most famous artists and thinkers, including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, and Pablo Picasso. She was a noted art collector, author, and lesbian, and her influence on the art world still resonates today.

Two museums in Washington DC are hosting art exhibits devoted to Stein. The National Portrait Gallery is featuring images of Stein created by notable artists, sculptors, and photographers.

The Stanford in Washington museum devotes their exhibit to artists inspired by Stein's towering legacy.
