Estate of Keith Haring, New York (gift of the above in November 1989)

The Keith Haring Foundation (by bequest from the above in 1990)

As a proudly out gay man, Haring was very interested in the openly queer artists that came before him. Just as Haring was a polymath and thoroughly integrated into the New York Downtown scene, Jean Cocteau was a fixture of the avant-garde world of early 20th century Paris, working across the fields of literature, visual art, theater and later film, who had many boyfriends and lovers throughout his life.
