Jean Cocteau, Versailles, 999 Numbered Copies, 30 Original Engravings, 1963


Jean Maurice Eugène Clément Cocteau (1889 – 1963) was a French poet, playwright, novelist, designer, film director, visual artist and critic. He was one of the foremost artists of the surrealist, avant-garde, and Dadaist movements and an influential figure in early 20th century art. The National Observer suggested that, “of the artistic generation whose daring gave birth to Twentieth Century Art, Cocteau came closest to being a Renaissance man.”
