"Jean Cocteau Lithograph Signed & Numbered"
JEAN COCTEAU (1889-1963) Original lithograph in color on Arches vellum paper, justified with signature and number in pencil and dry stamp of the workshop Numbered copy: 243/500 Leaf height: 40 cm Leaf width: 30 cm Height subject height: 29 cm Subject width: 22 cm Jean Cocteau was born in 1889. The protean work of the poet Jean Cocteau, in his own words, was divided into "novel poetry, theater poetry, critical poetry, cinematographic poetry" . Poet of course, novelist (Les Enfants terribles), playwright (Les Parents terribles), filmmaker (Orphée, Beauty and the Beast, etc.), but also decorator for the theater, ceramist or even lithographer. He made posters (Les Ballets russes de Diaghilew), decorated the interior of chapels (Villefranche-sur-Mer, Milly-la-Fôret, London) and a wedding hall (Menton), tried to draw a few boxes of tapestries. He illustrated many books, several of his own texts (Thomas the Impostor, Le Potomak), and so many texts by poets and writers (Radiguet, Hugnet, etc.). His graphic work was, still is, widely exhibited. Perhaps, some will say that his drawn work concealed more authenticity in the first part of his life, the line, thereafter, immutably uninterrupted, making for itself an eternal and even representation. Cocteau liked to work with mythological subjects, portraits and genre scenes. Many of his line drawings are collected in albums (Drawings, Le Mystère de Jean l'Oiseleur, etc.). At the end of his days came the official honors. Jean Cocteau died in 1963.
