Towards the end of the twentieth century Cocteau was still better known for his films and books than for his art. Published in 1995, Cocteau’s Erotic Drawings draws on works produced over four decades and aims to raise awareness Cocteau’s extensive oeuvre as painter and draughtsman and in particular his celebration of the Eros of male sex.
