“A writer should write with his eyes a painter paint with his ears”
This garment is named after the world famous an American modernist writer and self-proclaimed genius Gertrude Stein (1874–1946). Her literary experiments continue to perplex critics, but her influence on American literature is unquestionable. Scholars recognize her as an important innovator who challenged narrative conventions and inspired writers like Hemingway and Anderson. From the early 1900s until her death, she held court in a vibrant Parisian salon frequented by artistic luminaries such as Picasso, Matisse, Fitzgerald, and many others.
