Stein Georges (Stein Séverin Louis) was born in Paris in 1864 or 1870.

Sources contradict each other about Stein’s dates birth and death. There is some uncertainty about Stein’s gender, some sources describe him as a female painter.

Stein was a student of the master teachers and artists Jules Lefebvre (1836 – 1912) and Gustave Boulanger (1824 – 1888).

Stein was a French Impressionist painter and draughtsman of cityscapes, landscapes, and seascapes. Primarily known for poetic views of Paris and London busy city life with elegant women who rush through their daily businesses. The painter also created scenes from Melun, Vichy, Bern, Geneva, and Monte Carlo.

Stein’s works are characterized by spontaneity and dynamism, giving the viewer the feeling of being part of the scenes.

In 1906 the works of the artist were exhibited at Salon des Indépendants; 1912, 1913 and 1914 at Salon des artistes Français, and in 1914 exhibition of the Société des Arts de Seine-et-Marne.

In 1910 Stein produced for the decor of a new casino in Vichy a set of four large canvases which depicted carriage rides, visits to the brasseries, the casino, and the racetrack.

He died in 1917, 1930 or 1955. Today, his works can be found in private and public collections, including at the Paris and Meulin (France) Museums.
