Lot Essay

Boris Kochno (d. 1990) was a Russian-born writer and ballet librettist who collaborated with ballet impresario Serge Diaghilev during the last years of the Ballets Russes. Upon Diaghilev's death in 1929, he moved with the Ballets Russes to Monte Carlo where he met Pablo Picasso, who designed the curtain, sets, costumes and objects for the ballet Jeux d'enfants in 1932. He later became a major influence on post-World War II French ballet and was surrounded by such eminent figures as Jean Genet, Jean Cocteau and Pablo Picasso.
