A time-lapse view of the two week long process of erecting Picasso' s giant backdrop for ' Le Train Bleu' in the V& A Exhibition Gallery with the help of a scaffolding tower, five riggers pulling it up and ten museum staff unrolling it.
The backdrop for the 1924 Ballets Russes production of ' Le Train Bleu' measures 10.4 m x 11.7 m. Signed by Picasso, it is the centrepiece of the exhibition.
FREE TALK: The second in a series of screenings programmed by our Exhibition Road artist in residence Jamie Jenkinson, this screening looks at the relationship between movement and colour in artist film and video.
You may not have thought of including a gift to a museum in your will, but the V&A is a charity and legacies form an important source of funding for our work. It is not just the great collectors and the wealthy who leave legacies to the V&A. Legacies of all sizes, large and small, make a real difference to what we can do and your support can help ensure that future generations enjoy the V&A as much as you have.
