    The portrait of Gertrude Stein by Riba-Rovira in 1945 is shown for the first time .And it is very interesting to see it with those of Picasso ,Picabia Valloton ,Tall-Coat .
    The first time togeither .
    And it is told that it was the last portrait by a painter .
    She wrote one of the last text where she gave us her last art vision .
    When we read it again ,it seems a light she gives us over the exhibition now .As she was still alive to see all their art .
    And about Cezanne ,Picasso ,Juan Gris ,Matisse when Riba-Rovira did his first exhibition on May 1945 to the Galerie Roquepine in Paris .
    It was the preface by Gertrude Stein for Riba-Rovira’s firts exhibition where she told us that “he would go farther than Cezanne…he would succeed in where Picasso failed…she was fascinated by him”

    And you ?
