item details

This is a mega rare chance to own a historic piece from one of the great artists of the 20th century, Jean Cocteau. Rare because it comes with provenance from Cocteau's adopted son, Edouard Dermit, who was also in chance of his estate after his death.

Obtained at auction in London years ago, it comes with the original Phillips Auction bag which has the lot number. The Dermit authenticty is on the reverse of a 10" by 8" photo of the piece and details of what it was used for which was as one of the illustrtions of a book, Raymond Oliver. Recettes pour un ami : Préface et illustrations de Jean Cocteau. Dermit dates his authenticity as 1991. The piece would have been done in the early 1960s.

The drawing has been done on some sort of linen which has been mounted onto board. Board size is approx: 13" x 15.5 inches. Piece is approx 12.5" x 10" inches.

The piece does have browning in areas consistent with age. Board has one or two blemishes. Nothing too bad and I have scanned it all.

Cocteau's original drawings with such provenance as from Dermit are mega rare. Wonderful piece.
