Museum shows off its Picasso women
Centrepiece for revamped theatre collection. By Maev Kennedy for The Guardian


The largest Picasso canvas in the world was rolled out on a floor yesterday, by the museum which owns it but hasn't a wall large enough to display it.

The Theatre Museum, which has one of the most important performing arts collections in the world, had to borrow a floor from the Royal Opera House, just across the road, in order to show off the gigantic painted cloth from the scenery of a famous show by Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, Le Train Bleu.

Picasso highlights theatre museum's big plans
By Louise Jury for The Independent

A giant stage curtain designed and signed by Picasso for the Ballet Russes was displayed for the first time in 20 years yesterday to highlight the treasures the Theatre Museum in London hopes to display if a £12m redevelopment goes ahead.

The stunning backdrop, made for the choreographer Diaghilev's production of Le Train Bleu in 1924, was unrolled on the floor of the Vilar Floral Hall at the Royal Opera House because it is too big to show in the nearby Theatre Museum.
