Lélièvre Paris’ newest collection of wallpapers wants to reflect the considerable and timeless work of Jean Cocteau, a French artist from the 20th century that considered himself a poet, and his graphic, graceful and mysterious talent is known throughout the world. This incredible collection is going to be presented for the first time at the trendy Paris Déco Off 2020.
Composition of several drawings of sleepers, including Raymond Radiguet in 1922, this all-over motif is printed as a monochrome toile de Jouy. The toile de Jouy represents traditional everyday scenes, “Les Dormeurs” suggesting a languorous daily life, of which Jean Cocteau was adept. He said, “Dreams are the literature of sleep”.
Large illusion motif with a unique selection of ceramics and pottery typical of the work of Jean Cocteau. All the works represented form part of some 300 pieces created by Jean Cocteau at the Madeline-Jolly pottery in Villefranche-sur-Mer from the end of 1957 until 1963.
A motif inspired by the original work “L’Esprit minéral” of 1962, a 33cm diameter plate in red earth with anthracite grey engobe, white oxide pencil, encrusted with coral, yellow and brilliant night blue enamels. Its geometric forms offer a nice matte/shiny contrast that reproduces the look of the original ceramic, quite unique just like Lélièvre.
This motif recalls the sumptuous plant decor of the walls of the Saint-Blaise des Simples chapel in Milly-la-Forêt painted by Jean Cocteau. To pay tribute to Saint-Blaise, a famous healer who used medicinal plants, then called “simple”, he pitched beautiful flowering stems like a giant herbarium onto the walls of the chapel, rising into the sky like a prayer. Lélièvre has respected the remarkable scale of these flowers by creating a wallpaper that can reach into infinity as a panoramic.
This all-over motif is inspired by the “Jeunesse Franco-Allemande” of 1963, a 36 cm diameter plate cut in white earth with black, yellow, blue, orange, green and red enamels. The Union wallpaper by Lélièvre is printed traditionally on non-woven media with a matte finish, its relief effects reminiscent of the thick enamels of the original work.
