    Laura, I have a copy (Yale University, Beineke Collection) of another Van Vechten photo of Ms. Stein hanging in my studio. Frist day of my first visit to Paris also saw 31 white roses left on the doorstep of 27 rue Fleuris- the address of G.S. and A.B.T’s famous salon. To a closeted, young, gay man, the example of G.S.’s life (“Charmed Circle”)was about permission to be different.
