Gertrude Stein and her Circle by Hilary Guise
Talk | Royal Over-Seas League
Monday 18 May 2015 - 15:00 until 16:00
This Spring’s series ‘Artistic Relations’ looks at the creative connections and artistic influences within a close relationship or group.
Gertrude Stein was an American Jewish intellectual writer living in Paris in the early 20th century. Her “pavilion” was open to painters, sculptors, writers and choreographers and she bought the most avant-garde art of the time.
This lecture by Hilary Guise uses Gertrude Stein to tie together the influences and events which effected the cross-fertilization of artistic ideas and kick-started the twentieth century. We examine the art that was so new in the pre-war years and anticipate its impact on a fragile post-war world.
This event has been organised by the London Events Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
