Jean Cocteau : a life by Claude Arnaud( Book )

23 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in French and English and held by 1,454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unevenly respected, easily hated, almost always suspected of being inferior to his reputation, Jean Cocteau has often been thought of as a jack-of-all-trades, master of none. In this landmark biography, Claude Arnaud thoroughly contests this characterization, as he celebrates Cocteau's "fragile genius--a combination almost unlivable in art" but in his case so fertile. Arnaud narrates the life of this legendary French novelist, poet, playwright, director, filmmaker, and designer who, as a young man, pretended to be a sort of god, but who died as a humble and exhausted craftsman. His moving and compassionate account examines the nature of Cocteau's chameleon-like genius, his romantic attachments, his controversial politics, and his intimate involvement with many of the century's leading artistic lights, including Picasso, Proust, Hemingway, Stravinsky, and Tennessee Williams. Already published to great critical acclaim in France, Arnaud's penetrating and deeply researched work reveals a uniquely gifted artist while offering a magnificent cultural history of the twentieth century -- Book jacket

Proust contre Cocteau by Claude Arnaud( Book )

13 editions published between 2013 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peu d'écrivains se sont autant aimés, enviés et jalousés que Proust et Cocteau. Très peu établirent une relation affective et sensible aussi riche, on l'ignore parfois. Tel un frère élevé une génération plus tôt, Proust montrait une admiration sans borne pour ce cadet qui le faisait rire aux larmes et manifestait à 20 ans le brio et la faculté qui lui manquaient encore, à près de 40 ans. Il l'aima d'un amour impossible et frustrant, comme tant d'autres avant lui ... Comment la situation s'est-elle retournée? Pourquoi Proust pèse-t-il tant sur un paysage littéraire que Cocteau semble toujours traverser en lièvre, un siècle plus tard? Aurait-il contribué à lui nuire? Le premier des autofictionneurs aurait-il eu besoin d'éliminer ses modèles?Vénérons le saint littéraire, apprenons à connaître l'assassin

Qu'as-tu fait de tes frères? : roman by Claude Arnaud( Book )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in French and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the mid-sixties, between Boulogne and Paris, a child was bored. He is curious, versatile, vibrant, shy. He spent his days reading and his nights scrutinizing the stars, under the ironic gaze of Pierre and Philippe, his brilliant elders. May 1968: Paris rises, the twelve-year-old boy joins the Sorbonne and the Odeon. He abandons his first name to become the elusive Arnulf, discovers artificial paradises and love with both sexes, turns into a revolutionary agent then a bird of night ... In the effervescence of the family, the family disintegrates: Philippe leaves to go around the world, the mother dies of a leukemia, Pierre is dark in madness. The collective euphoria turns into an intimate tragedy, the decade of powder turns to the years of lead. "Our only duty is to do whatever we have been forbidden to do": the cadet asks why he escaped this program, which his elders followed to the drama. Ample, ambitious, this novel revives the almost suicidal vitality of a generation nourished by pop-rock and drugs, free love, claimed excesses and utopias. What have you done with your brothers? is the confession of a child of an age that continues to haunt our imagination."--Publisher

La totalité de sa garde-robe, qui regroupe plus de 160 pièces, fut donnée en 1964 au Palais Galliera, qui en assure aujourd'hui encore la conservation
Gabrielle Chanel : fashion manifesto by Claude Arnaud( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A revolutionary fashion icon, Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel can lay claim to inventing modern women's fashion. At the beginning of the twentieth century, she stripped women of their corsets, bobbed their hair, and sent them out into the sun to get a tan. She introduced the little black dress, created women's trousers, and produced the exquisitely made suits that became her trademark. She designed the first-ever couture perfume-No. 5-whose square-cut, cubist bottle became a symbol of art deco style, and which remains the most popular scent ever created. Her ideas on elegance and what it meant to be a modern woman created an immutable sense of style that still resonates today.Published to accompany a landmark exhibition in Paris, Gabrielle Chanel chronicles the designer's life from birth through the evolution of her timeless style. Specially commissioned photographs by Julien T. Hamon showcase her designs, while essays from fashion historians complemented by rare archival documents, including pictures of Chanel herself, paint a portrait of the designer in her time. This volume is a must-have for all fashion fans and students"--
