Les Amoureux- From the Album "Jean Cocteau Lithographies" by Jean Cocteau

1957

US$1,190

About

The modern lithograph "Les Amoureux" by Jean Cocteau was printed at the Atelier Mourlot in 1957. Cocteau was a master at representing the languid forms of his subjects in sketches. He often used no more than five or six lines to create a woman's long wavy hair, full lips, or searching eyes. An important exponent of avant-garde art, he had great influence on the work of others, including Picasso. Certificate of Provenance: Each individual work of art carefully curated by Mourlot Editions comes with a Certificate of Provenance, signed, dated, stamped, and numbered by Eric Mourlot. Stored in a clear protective sleeve accompanying your piece, this certificate guarantees the origin and authenticity of your personal lithograph. About the Artist: (1889-1963) French Cocteau was a playwright, a novelist, artist, poet, designer, and filmmaker. He truly was a renaissance man living in Paris through the city’s great artistic heyday. During the years of the Great War, Cocteau began to associate himself with artists across differing spheres, including the Russian ballet director Diaghilev, composers Stravinksy and Satie, and Picasso; however, it was not until his later life that Cocteau added art to his creative endeavors and experimented with pastels, prints, and posters. He eventually took up easel painting in 1950.
