Gertrude Stein (1874–1946) was an American poet, novelist, art collector, and playwright who famously hosted a Paris salon frequented by the likes of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Pablo Picasso, and Ernest Hemingway. Before she was a patron to “The Lost Generation” artists, Stein was an esteemed author who influenced many 20th-century writers with her innovative and experimental prose. First published in 1933, “Matisse Picasso and Gertrude Stein” contains three prose pieces written in the stream-of-consciousness style that Stein was famous for. A modernist classic not to be missed by fans and collectors of Stein’s seminal work. Contents include: “The Work of Gertrude Stein, by Sherwood Anderson”, “A Long Gay Book”, “Many Many Women”, and “G. M. P.” Other notable works by this author include: “Three Lives” (1909), “White Wines” (1913), and “An Exercise in Analysis” (1917). Read & Co. Classics is republishing this work now in a new edition complete with an introductory essay by Sherwood Anderson.
