Marks: Signed and dated on front; On reverse inscribed Edition Originale de Jean Cocteau, Atelier Madeline-Jolly and numbered 27/50 on the reverse. Jean Cocteau and dish! A member of the French Academy, Jean Cocteau was certainly a Renaissance Man of the 20th century. Not content to limit his artistic expression to one genre, he worked in the fields of literature, music, theater and film, and the visual arts. He was a poet, a novelist, playwright, and actor; he adapted screenplays, acted, directed for film and stage and was an artist and designer. He was a central figure in the art world in his time, and his versatility led him to befriend and work with notable artists, writers, directors, and actors of his time. His list of friends, lovers and collaborators reads as a veritable Who?s Who of the 20th century art world; to name but a few: Pablo Picasso, Jean Satie, Igor Stravinsky, Kenneth Anger, Marlene Dietrich, Edith Piaf; there were many others. Jean Cocteau came to the world of pottery rather late in life, he was 68 years old when he began to explore the field of ceramics after meeting Marie Madeleine Jolly and Philippe Madeline, with whom he worked in close collaboration to create his series of pottery from 1958 until the year of his death in 1963. During the years at the ?Madeleine-Jolly? workshop, he created more than 300 pieces of ceramic and jewelry, which he referred to as ?graphic poetry.
