Jean Cocteau, ‘Portrait du Clown Rico’, 1915, Tom Craig Fine Art

An exceptionally beautiful early Cocteau drawing. Executed in 1915, Cocteau returned to the drawing and dated it a second time, possibly as a dedication.

An exquisite, intense and highly unusual work.

Signature: Signed and dated twice lower
