Gertrude Stein and her portrait

with one comment


Man Ray, Gertrude Stein and Picasso’s Portrait (1922)

It took 90 sittings for Picasso to complete his Portrait of Gertrude Stein, and he gave her a primitive mask for a face. Stein liked Picasso’s Portrait but said it didn’t look like her. He told her she would grow to resemble it. She was a true friend and equal with Picasso.
