Matisse Picasso and Gertrude Stein - Gertrude Stein 1933 - Plain Edition, Paris - One of 500 copies printed by Maurice Darantiere ‘To lie in the cheese, to smile in the butter, to lengthen in the rain, to sit in the flour all that makes a model stronger, there is no strangeness where there is more useful color, a description has not every mission.’

Gertrude Stein’s important collection of experimental writing, featuring the title essay – where she steeps herself in the art of Matisse and Picasso and develops a kind of literary cubism – and two short stories, ‘
A Long Gay Book’ and ‘Many Many Women’, both of which dated from the first decade of the 20th century. These pieces show Stein’s evolving approach to aphorism and, particularly to repetition, a device that would later become her trademark.
