GERTRUDE STEIN PICASSO

Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose.

Gertrude Stein [1874-1946] Sacred Emily

Gertrude Stein was an American novelist, poet, and playwright. Born in the Allegheny West neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and raised in Oakland, California, Stein moved to Paris in 1903, and and made France her home for the remainder of her life. A literary innovator and a pioneer of Modernist literature, Stein’s work broke with the narrative, linear, and temporal conventions of the 19th-century. She was also known as a collector of Modernist art.

Scritti Politti are a British new wave band, originally formed in 1977 in Leeds, Yorkshire, England, by Cardiff-born singer-songwriter Green Gartside. He is the only member of the band to have remained throughout the group’s history.

Barbara Stanwyck (born Ruby Catherine Stevens) was an American actress. She was a film and television star, known during her 60-year career as a consummate and versatile professional with a strong, realistic screen presence, and a favorite of directors including Cecil B. DeMille, Fritz Lang and Frank Capra.

Siouxsie and the Banshees were an English rock band formed in London in 1976 by vocalist Siouxsie Sioux and bass guitarist Steven Severin.

James Maitland Stewart, also known as Jimmy Stewart, was an American General in the USAF and actor, known for his distinctive drawl and down-to-earth persona.

The Smiths were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1982. The band consisted of vocalist Morrissey, guitarist Johnny Marr, bassist Andy Rourke and drummer Mike Joyce.

Francis Albert “Frank” Sinatra was an American singer, actor, and producer who was one of the most popular and influential musical artists of the 20th century. Sinatra’s music has been considered timeless by many.

I am taking part in the April A to Z Blog Challenge. Every day in the month of April, I will post a blog entry related to a letter of the alphabet.
