Portrait of Jean Cocteau (1912)

Federico de Madrazo y Ochoa (1875, Rome - 1934, Madrid) was a Spanish painter working mostly in and around Madrid, although he also spent some time in Paris.

He was part of a famous family of Spanish artists which included his father Raimundo de Madrazo, his uncle Ricardo de Madrazo, his grandfather, Federico de Madrazo, and his great grandfather José de Madrazo.[1]

He worked together with Jean Cocteau to write a ballet, Le Dieu bleu (The Blue God), in 1912 for Serge Diaghilev's Ballets Russes.[2] Music for the ballet was composed by Reynaldo Hahn. He also painted Cocteau's most familiar portrait.
