Jean Cocteau

Jean Cocteau

was a French poet, novelist, dramatist, designer, boxing manager, playwright, artist and filmmaker.
I shall never forget what I saw at the Museum of Modern Art: in a spotless schoolroom, fifty little girls painting away at tables covered with brushes, pots, tubes, bowls, staring into space and sticking out their tongues like the clever animals that ring a bell, tongues lolling and eyes vague. Teachers supervise these young creators of abstract art and slap their wrists if what they paint represents something and dangerously inclines toward realism. The mothers - still at the Picasso stage - are not admitted.More Jean Cocteau quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Such is the role of poetry. It unveils, in the strict sense of the word. It lays bare, under a light which shakes off torpor, the surprising things which surround us and which our senses record mechanically.More Jean Cocteau quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
