Art Talk – The Blue Train
In 1924, "le Train bleu" inspired a ballet of the same name, created by Diaghilev and the Ballets russes, with a story by Jean Cocteau, costumes by Coco Chanel and a curtain painted by Pablo Picasso. The 15-minute ballet is recreated by today’s Paris Ballet Theater. Watch the ballet and then participate in a discussion of the Ballets Russes and some of their other performances, led by Dena Crosson, Ph.D.
Dr. Crosson is an accredited member of the American Society of Appraisers. Dena has a Ph.D. in art history from the University of Maryland. She is an adjunct professor of art history in the Washington, D.C. area and has taught at the University of Maryland, the Corcoran School of Art + Design and the George Washington University.
