In this illustrated version of celebrated poet and art patron Gertrude Stein’s first ‘word portrait’, Berlin based artist Atak visually recounts the fortunes of the poem’s two protagonists Barnes and Ada Colhard alongside a hand written version of the poem.

Generally thought to have been created for Stein’s lover Alice Toklas, the poem represented a significant breakthrough in her prose writing as it focused on the interior quality of the characters and established the stylistic format for many ‘portraits’ to come.
