Alice B. Toklas...

helped found modern art as we know it...I had no idea. Pablo Picasso was working on a portrait of Gertrude Stein, and after about eighty sittings, he said, "Fuck it!" He left out her face and left for Spain. Some months later, he returned to the canvas and painted Stein's face from memory. He was told by many people who he showed the work to that it did not resemble his subject, but Toklas saw it differently. She told Picasso that she admired its representation, encouraging him. "Everyone says that she does not look like it, but that does not make any difference...she will," he told her. The painting of the Spanish bordello would follow, and the rest is history. I wonder if Hemingway got all fucked up on her ganja treats.

Let's not forget Cezanne, Braque, and the influences of tribal sculpture and masks, too...

With the exception of World War One, the Spanish Flu, and a few other little things, living in Paris in the first three decades of the 20th Century would have been wonderful. A great time to be an artist, writer, or musician -- so much was going on and changing...

Vive les Modernes! :cool:

PS: The 1940-50s in New York would have been great too. I would have loved to hang out at the original Cedar Tavern!
