The Visionary Genius of Gertrude Stein

Jeff CarreiraNew Paradigm Thinking, Philosophical InquiryLeave a Comment

During the opening decades of the 20th century, 27 rue de Fleurus on the left bank of Paris was home to Gertrude Stein and her famous salons. In her home Stein assembled one of the greatest assortments of artists and writers ever gathered in one place. Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, James Joyce, Ezra Pound and Henri Matisse, were only a few of the many geniuses that came seeking Stein’s advice and critique. In this presentation you will learn about the birthplace of modern art and literature and its midwife, Gertrude Stein.

Dirt And Not Copper
Dirt and not copper makes a color darker. It makes the shape so heavy and makes no melody harder.

It makes mercy and relaxation and even a strength to spread a table fuller. There are more places not empty. They see cover.

~ Gertrude Stein

A Carafe, That Is A Blind Glass
A kind in glass and a cousin, a spectacle and nothing strange a single hurt color and an arrangement in a system to pointing. All this and not ordinary, not unordered in not resembling. The difference is spreading.

~ Gertrude Stein
