who were the Steins anyway?

May 11, 2011

Rebecca Rabinow, associate curator at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and co-curator of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SF MOMA) exhibition “The Steins Collect,” provides an overview of how this family — Leo, Gertrude, Michael, and Sarah Stein — changed the face of modern art. In the two SF MOMA videos below Rabinow begins with the family’s life in Paris, where they began collecting and befriended some of the most influential artists of the twentieth century.

Overwhelmed by the selection of events to go to this summer? You can take a look at the selection of Stein events catered mostly to a LGBT audience here.
