Event description
Explore various aspects of Gertrude Stein’s life and legacy with French Art Historian Tosca Ruggieri.

About this event

Gertrude Stein’s presence in early 20th century Paris shaped a whole generation of artists, painters and authors. Larger than life, she is mainly remembered for her personality and patronage of the arts, more than for her huge contribution to modern literature.

Join us for an online lecture with French Art Historian Tosca Ruggieri who will examine various aspects of Gertrude Stein’s life and legacy while also exploring the close ties between American collectors and France.

About the speaker

Tosca Ruggieri was born and raised near Reims, a city in northeastern France and has spent a significant portion of her time in Italy.

She graduated with a Master’s Degree in Art & Archaeology from the EPHE-Sorbonne in Paris in 2015. Her broad interests in art led her to conduct research on subjects such as Etruscan Jewelry and Decorative Arts in the Italian Renaissance. In London, Tosca obtained her Master’s Degree from King's College London.

After a career in the art markets of Paris and London, where she worked with auctions houses, art galleries and private collectors, Tosca reconnected with her passion for art through teaching art history.

Now based in Washington, D.C., Tosca offers cultural tours of the capital’s National Gallery of Art which boasts from an overflowing collection of masterpieces from the Italian Renaissance to Modern masters. She also offers a program of online lectures on a wide array of art history subjects. Her objective is to inspire through different aesthetics in art history and to transport her audience across centuries of art.
