Synopsis: Building on previous comparisons between Gertrude Stein?s literary work and early modernist artwork, this interartistic study offers an in-depth examination of the structural and conceptual connections between Stein?s literary portraits and portraits created by Cézanne, Matisse and Picasso. These portraits reveal a continuing search for a means of portraying the Self, an incessant questioning of the Self - both in terms of identity and entity - and a relentless reflection on creating the Self anew in art. In the process of searching, Stein, Cézanne, Matisse and Picasso came to create portraits of the 20th century Self.

About the Author: The Author: Allison Blizzard began her academic career in Literature and Foreign Languages (German and French) at Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington in 1988. She received her M.A. in American Studies, German Literature and Philosophy in 1999 and her Ph.D. in 2003 from the Universität Duisburg-Essen in Duisburg. She has been a lecturer in the American Studies department there since 2000. Her main field of research deals with intermediality, especially in regard to Gertrude Stein and modernist art, but also in relation to cartoons and jazz music.
