The Steins Collect

The Steins collect : Matisse, Picasso, and the Parisian avant-garde by edited by Janet Bishop, Cécile Debray, and Rebecca Rabinow — Marvelous, inspiring and accessible book for anyone interested in the birth of modern art. This book accompanies a traveling exhibition on the art and collecting of the Stein family: brothers Leo and Michael Stein, sister and writer Gertrude and Michael's wife, Sarah. As American expatriates living in Paris during the first decade of the twentieth century, the Steins supported and promoted avant-garde painting with Leo and Gertrude supporting Pablo Picasso's work and Sarah and Michael behind Henri Matisse.
