DISPLAYING: 11" x 14" Fine Art Print
The French poet, writer, artist, and film maker Jean Maurice Eugene Clement Cocteau was born to a wealthy family on July 5, 1889 in a small town near Paris, France. Cocteau's father commited suicide when the boy was about ten years old-Jean will not publicly speak of the tragic event until 1963, the year of his own death. The family continued to live with his maternal grandparents and young Jean is brought up in an environment where the art, music and theater are held in high esteem.
