Gertrude Stein (1874-1946) was a collector of modern art and a feminist writer, whose long relationship with Alice B. Toklas and whose writings may have introduced the use of "gay" to describe a male homosexual. Stein experimented with stream-of-consciousness writing (like James Joyce); well-known quotes include: "Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose"; about Oakland, "There is no there there."
MATISSE, PICASSO, AND GERTRUDE STEIN is a collection of short stories by feminist avant-garde author Gertrude Stein.
