Diaghilev was a ballet impresario for the Ballet Russes in the early 20th century. He brought together the greatest artists of the time such as dancers (Nijinsky and Alicia Markova), composers (Stravinsky), artists (Picasso, Matisse) and choreographers (Balanchine) who created really famous pieces such as "The Rite of Spring" Click this for a link to the National Gallery page about this show. Alas, there are no images of the show on their website, so you have to go to see it, or buy the book HERE. And the book is very good.
AND, there is a second terrific show on the same floor. This is a very large exihibit of art by Albrecht Durer. I don't know why, but the National Gallery website doesn't have a page for this show, although they have a number of images of his artwork to view on line HERE.
Durer was the greatest German Renaissance artist. There is work he did as a teenager that is so excellent. The exhibit is quite large and shows a few pages of a book of detailed human anatomy that I never knew he made until this last weekend. So that explains why his nudes are always so good. I took a really fabulous photo of a drawing that shows the front and back of a woman's gown before (honestly) I saw the "no photos" sign. I feel a tiny bit guilty, but I can't delete it ... LOOK!
Hope some of you can see these shows.
