Gertrude Stein Collection incl. Bonnard, Klee, Gris, Matisse, Picasso & van Dongen - A Rose Is A Rose Is A Rose
“A CREATOR IS A CONTEMPORARY, HE UNDERSTANDS WHAT IS CONTEMPORARY WHEN THE CONTEMPORARIES DO NOT YET KNOW IT.”
Nahmad Projects presents 'Gertrude Stein: a rose is a rose is a rose', an homage to the iconic author’s role as patron, critic, and friend to the creative pioneers who paved the way to modernism in the twentieth century.
The exhibition brings together paintings by Pierre Bonnard, Paul Klee, Juan Gris, Henri Matisse, Joan Miró, Francis Picabia, Pablo Picasso, and Kees van Dongen. The title is inspired by one of Stein’s most famous quotations, “Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose.” First coined in a poem titled Sacred Emily (1913), the ﬁrst “Rose” was originally the name of a person. The phrase developed and came to mean “things are what they are.”
