Jean Cocteau
La Chapelle de Villefranche-sur-Mer - Au Pont des Arts, Jean Cocteau, Litho 1957

1957

About the Item

"Art is a mirage of the conscious and the unconscious." -Jean Cocteau This original lithographic poster by Jean Cocteau was created for an exhibition of works related to his project at the Chapel of Saint Peter in Villefranche-sur-mer, in the South of France. The exhibition was held in 1957 at the Galerie Lucie Weill, near the Pont des Arts in Paris. In 1956, Cocteau restored and decorated a small church in Villefranche sur Mer on the Cote d'Azur, a picturesque fishing town that had stolen his heart. At the encouragement of the town's fisherman association, he meticulously covered the chapel in painted frescoes that to this day amaze visitors with a breathtaking harmony between spirituality and creative artistry. Ed. 500. Certificate of Provenance: Each individual work of art carefully curated by Mourlot Editions comes with a Certificate of Provenance, signed, dated, stamped, and numbered by Eric Mourlot. This certificate guarantees the origin and authenticity of your personal lithograph.

I must be quoted in the next Journal of Useful Knowledge" or "Look at this, sir, go ahead, smell it ... I am proud of this particularly pink flower ... it's flourishing for the first time ... with patience, and care I was able to give it an odor of rhubarb! .. . Surely I should be mentioned in the next edition of the Journal of Useful knowledge". The lithograph was published in the famous and very popular French satirical...
