COCTEAU Jean (1889-1963)
Novelist, painter, filmmaker… Cocteau is a complete artist. In 1957, his meeting with Marie-Madeleine Jolly and Philippe Madeline paved the way for him in ceramics. In 1958, he exhibited in their studio in Villefranche sur Mer. Until his death, more than 300 works were created there. On the vases, dishes and other pottery arise women-lyres, angels, harlequins inspired by Greek mythology and a magical world, through which all his poetic genius is expressed.
