Leo Stein (1872-1947), together with his famous sister Gertrude, became one of the most important collectors of Picasso, Braque, Matisse, and other artists of the period. His close, complex, and troubled relationship with his sister ihas been much written about (after a rift in 1920 they never spoke to each other again), including a recent study by Breanda Wineapple SISTER BROTHER: GERTRUDE AND LEO STEIN (NY, 1996).
