    Stein, Gertrude

    Gertrude Stein (1874 – 1946) was an American writer who moved to Paris in 1903 and stayed there for the remainder of her life. She was a leading figure in the avant-garde and helped to launch the careers of Picasso and Matisse. She tried to achieve in her writing what contemporary painters were doing in their art: to create an experimental non-linear form that broke away from nineteenth century conventions of sense and chronology.
