Cocteau had been unsuccessful as a student failing his Bacalauriat. He was sent to Val-Andre, a Breton seaside resort, to the home of Hermann Dietz, a teacher at the Lyceee Buffon, who gave remedial courses to students. “He surprised us by the contrast between his Protestantism and his odalisque poses”, worse Cocteau, “He would stretch himself out , slither about, knot himself up and unknot himself, sending an arm here, a leg there”.Authentification: A certificate from the Jean Cocteau expert, Annie Guedras,  dated 15th May 2002, Archive number 4123, comes with this item.
