Jean Cocteau

Jean Cocteau

Poet, painter, film-maker and more, Jean Cocteau was one of the most important artists of the 20th century. Now, a selection of his work celebrating Greek mythology has been reinterpreted by the artisans of Raynaud to create a new collection of fine tableware. Cocteau’s line drawings of mythical musician Orpheus, his wife Eurydice, the sea-god Proteus and Antinous, a favourite of the Roman emperor Hadrian, have been placed on matte pastel backgrounds in the subtle hues favoured by the artist. Each piece is both a work of art in its own right and an integral part of this stunning collection.
