Picasso and Gertrude Stein (Metropolitan Museum of Art Publications)
Extensively illustrated. Recounts the extraordinary circumstances that led to Stein's first posing session for "Portrait of Gertrude Stein " and argues that the portrait played a key role not only in Picasso's work as a painter but also in his subject's creative life, as he became, in turn, the subject of several of Stein's literary portraits. 60p. Bibliography.
