Portrait of Jean Genet II (1950) by Leonor Fini.
Artworks depicting Genet or based on his work are more plentiful than I thought. These are some of the better examples. It’s good to know that the great Leonor Fini was one of the earliest portraitists; in addition to painting two pictures of Genet she also produced a series of erotic engravings based on his writings.
Jean Genet (1952) by Jean Cocteau.
A portrait by Cocteau I hadn’t seen before.
Portrait of Jean Genet (1955) by Alberto Giacometti.
One of three portraits. Genet speaks favourably of Giacometti in Antoine Bourseiller’s film.
