Jean Marais



Jean Marais Signature



This is such a delightful book. I first came across it when I began getting interested in Jean Marais straight after seeing Orphee for the first time. I remember first seeing it in a Paris bookshop and couldn't believe that before my eyes, was a whole new journey in front of me on his art which, up to then, I knew nothing about. The art overwhelmed me: not just the portraits of Cocteau, Genet, et al but the pictures of his ceramics, his oils, lithographs and drawings, and his home and his bar. Turning the page revealed another splendour, another work of art from le potier.

Of course it is all in French but if you don't speak French don't let that put you off - the pictures more than make up for it and, if nothing else, serves as an essential reference point for any Marais collector as there are examples galore of each of the mediums he worked in. Also, there are candid photos of Jean himself with and without his illustrious friends; a dramaturgie, filmographie (up to 1988 and with reproductions of some of the film posters), and a list of various publications and TV appearances.

Jean Marais to life like no other book that I know.

Hardcover, French, 192 pages and published by Edisud. Sized 11 x 10 inches approx and released in France 1988.
