Gertrude Stein Portrait / by Jennifer Wagner

I loved the sculpture of Gertrude Stein by Jo Davidson at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C.  I photographed it many times from multiple angles and created this piece as a result.  More information on the sculpture can be found here.  The roses are specimens I photographed at the nearby United States Botanic Garden and are an allusion to Stein's famous line,  "Rose is a rose is a rose."
