Jean Cocteau - In 1889 Cocteau was born to a wealthy Paris family. When he was just a boy his father committed suicide and Cocteau was expelled from private school shortly there after. Jean took to the streets and ran away to the red light district of Marseilles. When Cocteau returned to Paris he began writing plays and poetry, this connection and passion for art kept Jean out of trouble. In 1917 he met Pablo Picasso, and travelled together as Cocteau helped Picasso design sets and prepare the ballet parade. Cocteau continued to write, and draw from his new gained training and influence of Picasso. Today the world still admirers both Cocteau's forms of art.
