IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE JEAN COCTEAU
USA- Assouline Publishing,
the illustrated book publishing house behind such timeless art titles such as Picasso, Dada Spirit, Art Game Books and Magritte will release a new title this Spring, Jean Cocteau.
Virtuoso of the world and the drawn line, Jean Cocteau (1889- 1963) did not reduce art to an aesthetic, but raised living to the level of art. Influenced by forces as diverse as surrealism, psychoanalysis, cubism, Catholicism, and opium, Cocteau made his name in poetry, fiction, film, ballet, painting, theater, and opera. For Serial Rights
