Inhaltsangabe: This volume presents an insight into Gertrude Stein's life, and provides a portrait of her gifted brother, Leo. It is the story of the relationship between a brother and a sister, shedding light on a beguiling and complex couple. The name Gertrude Stein conjures up the romanticized Paris of the 1920s. However, for almost two decades before that, Leo and Gertrude Stein had held court to writers and painters at 27, Rue de Fleurs in a salon filled with the bright, bold canvases they were purchasing. Brilliant, voluble and profoundly insecure, brother and sister spent most of their lives shoring up their images, each helping to create the other. A complementary and devoted couple, eccentric and compelling, they were constantly together from childhood to adulthood. And then their mutual dependence proved too painful. Leo denounced his sister's work, denounced the painters he had once supported and, in 1914, denounced Paris for a life of uninterrupted solitude.
Rezension: Central to avant-garde Paris in the early years of this century, Gertrude Stein grew into a cult figure, a proponent of modernist experimentation and a writer who inspired such authors as Ernest Hemingway and Sherwood Anderson. Less well known is her brother, Leo Stein, who amassed an incredible collection of early modern art and helped paved the way for his sister's modernist exploration. In this biography, Brenda Wineapple traces the story of the Steins' eventful life and their own relationship, which ended with a complete break.
