Exhibition: I Stay with You

On the occasion of the sixtieth anniversary of the death of Jean Cocteau, the museum that he himself conceived as a testimony to his art is returning to its historical setting.


Jean Cocteau died on October 11, 1963, leaving behind a body of work as rich as it is incredibly varied. The question of his posterity and the future of his art was one of the artist’s main concerns in his final years, and Menton provided the solution by offering him the Bastion to set up his museum. In this showcase, decorated by Cocteau himself, he wanted to exhibit some of the most emblematic works of his dazzling career: colorful pastels, monumental tapestries, surprising paintings, and bold ceramics make up the original collection of this true testament museum…

Not to mention the famous series of “Lovers,” drawings that perfectly embody the artist’s Mediterranean inspiration. Sixty years after the death of the Prince of Poets, the Musée Jean Cocteau-le Bastion has returned to exhibit its historical work, paying a vibrant tribute to its protective artist, adopting the words he wanted to be engraved on his tombstone: “Je reste avec vous” (“I stay with you”).
