Cocteau drawings

Some of the drawings by Jean Cocteau that comprise a new exhibition at Wessel + O’Connor Fine Art, Lambertville, New Jersey. A third of these are untitled pencil drawings from the 1950s that look like unused illustrations from the first edition of Genet’s Querelle de Brest (1947): matelots posing in various states of undress, masturbating or having sex. Among the other works there are several lithographs in the Cocteau-does-Picasso style. Everything is for sale but no prices are listed on the website.
