Testimony Against Gertrude Stein. [cover title]

“In later years Braque, Eugene Jolas, Matisse, Andre Salmon, and Tristan Tzara published jointly a Testimony against Gertrude Stein (1935), in which they denied her understanding of their work, of Cubism, and of painting in general. According to Braque, ‘Miss Stein understood nothing of what went on around her’; and Salmon echoed this condemnation: ‘I had thought, along with all our friends, that she had really understood things. It is evident that she understood nothing, except in a superficial way.’” (NAW) Published as “Transition Pamphlet no. 1. This is a supplement to Transition 1934–1935 (no. 23) Not for sale separately.”
