It would not be an exaggeration to call Gertrude Stein the architect of Modernism. Not only did she write groundbreaking fiction and poetry, she played a foundational role in cultivating the Modernist movement. Her salon on the Left Bank in Paris served as a gathering place for the major artists and writers of the 1920s as Stein and her partner, Alice B. Toklas, opened their home as the nerve center for art. This lecture presents Stein’s life as writer and impresario.
