Taken late in her life, this photograph of a graying Stein stands in what she playfully called the Salon des Refusés gallery at 5, rue Christine. Paintings and books surround her. Hanging on the wall in the background is the neoclassical portrait by Francis Picabia of Stein dressed in a striped roman toga. The six paintings on the side wall and the stacks of them leaning against the table all appear to be by Francis Rose. No one knows for sure how many of Rose’s paintings Stein bought—estimates vary from forty to one hundred—but there can be no doubt that she bought more of his work than that of any other painter after World War I.
