    Great-grandson of the poet Victor Hugo, Jean Hugo (1894-1984) was within the lively artistic milieu that evolved in Paris in the early 20th century, but was never a slave to its theories or practices, preferring to develop his own distinctive style. Generally working in gouache, tempera and oil, Hugo also collaborated with Cocteau on his ballet Les Mariés de la Tour Eiffel (see lot 10) designing the costumes. His career spanned the century, and was described by the writer Maurice Sachs as "a man of the world, a man of great distinction in heart and spirit, a kind friend, a man you would want to have in your life."
