4. Claribel Cone, Gertrude Stein and Etta Cone 1903

“Although Gertrude Stein tried to belittle the Cone sisters as mere ‘shoppers’ guided by her taste, in fact the sisters had strong tastes guided by the enormous collection of books on art which they purchased and studied. Their purchases were displayed on the walls of their Marlborough apartments in Baltimore. The sisters' nephew once commented on this display, ‘The pictures covered every available inch of wall space, even in the bathrooms.’” — Wikipedia
