1950: Murals

Cocteau Murals

“In the Spring of 1950, Francine Weisweiller invited…Jean Cocteau to the villa for dinner and basically he and his handsome boyfriend…Edouard Dermit ended up moving in and staying for 13 years….Cocteau offered to do a drawing over the fireplace in the main living room. Over time the whole house ended up like a piece of art, mosaic flooring, walls and even the ceilings were covered with his work and all in representation of the individuals and the lives they were leading there.” (Sources here and here.)
