Louis Vauxcelles (1870 - 1943) is credited with coining the terms Fauvism (1905) and Cubism (1908). Jean Cocteau (1889 -1963) was a French poet, playwright, novelist, designer, film director, visual artist and critic. He was one of the foremost artists of the surrealist, avant-garde, and Dadaist movements and an influential figure in early 20th century art. This copy represents an important association between two French art figures, one the most influential critic of his generation and the other - apart from Picasso, to whom Cocteau dedicated this work - the most influential artist of the 20thC. Good. Item #013385
