Jean Cocteau, born 5th July 1889 in Maisons-Laffitte and died on 11 October 1963 at his home in Milly-la-Forêt, was a French poet, graphic designer, illustrator, playwright and filmmaker. He was elected to the Académie Française in 1955.
Among the artists who have marked the 20th century, he has worked with most of those who led the artistic life of his time. He was the impresario of his time, the trendsetter and the guardian angel of countless artists. Despite his literary works and artistic talents, Jean Cocteau always insisted on the fact that he was above all a poet and that all work is poetic. In 1909, he published his first collection of poems. Part of various artists circles, Jean cocteau is as passionate about poetry as cinema. His encounter with Serge de Diaghilev, master of Russian ballets, marked him deeply. From their collaboration came several ballets, including ‘Parade’, set to music by Erik Satie, with sceneries by Pablo Picasso.
