Jean Cocteau : Jean Cocteau (1889-1963) is a poet, graphic designer, draughtsman, playwright and french movie director. He is one of the major artists of the 20th century. He was the impresario of his time, the trend maker, the inspiration of many artists and put his personal touch in all his creations with a singular grace, an inexhausted originality and a rare intuition. Despite his literary works and artistic talents, Jean Cocteau has always insisted on the fact that he was above all a poet and that every work was petic. He let movies which had marked the century, as "Le Sang d'un poète" (A poet's blood), The Beauty and The beast, Orpheus, but also famous illustrations as "Le Livre blanc" (The white book).
