Stein, Gertrude: What are Master-Pieces? v.1, 22 March 2008.
‘What Are Master-Pieces and Why Are There So Few Of Them?’
A lecture (about 3,800 words).
As a friend of Picasso, Chagall and many other eminent painters, Miss Stein may well know something about this topic.
NB The (lack of) punctuation is a feature of Gertrude Stein’s inimitable style.
