The sentence ‘Rose is a rose is a rose’ was written by Gertrude Stein as part of the 1913 poem 'Sacred Emily’, which appeared in the 1922 book 'Geography and Plays’. In the poem, it references that the first 'Rose’ is the name of a person. As one of her most famous quotations, Stein later used variations of the quote in her other writing and it is often interpreted as a means to say 'things are what they are’.

Having always liked the quote and having named his own daughter Rose, Blake took joy in developing these prints in an instinctive direction, evolving the meaning of the quote from a statement of the law of identity to an artistic translation using print media to create three exquisite silkscreens.
