Air France

Air France by Jean Cocteau is a Lithograph print from an edition of 75. It is signed at the lower right corner and numbered at lower left corner. It features a sense of France with a female figure blowing smoke to make the words “Paris” , and the Eiffel Tower in the background in a light and pale tone.

Cocteau’s activities of the 1920s were remarkably varied. He composed opera libretti for several composers. He published collections of poetry and illustrations as well as a novel inspired by his experiences during World War I. He staged a ballet called Le Boeuf Sur le Toit (The Ox on the Roof) and directed modern adaptations of several classic dramas. He promoted the work of young writer Raymond Radiguet, with whom he fell in love. When Radiguet died of typhoid fever, Cocteau was despondent and tried to console himself by taking opium.
