About Jacques Prevert
Jacques Prévert was a poet, a scriptwriter and an artist of repute. When he was not writing, he kept himself busy by cutting, assembling and sticking photos, drawings and images. He used to compose his collages from ready-made images – postcards, reproduction of art works, magazine pictures, photographs taken by his friends Izis, Brassaï, Villers, Trauner. The construction of his collages somehow evokes theatrical staging. He used to put pre-cut characters on a scene and move them until they found their place.
