Foot Note 
The present lot, produced in the final year of Cocteau's life, is one of a limited edition of five, with only one other recorded example produced outside of this edition reserved for a Mr. Jean Moreau. Jean Cocteau was a seminal figure in the history of art in the 20th century who, as a creative polymath, worked across a variety of media, including literature, visual arts and film.
