Diaghilev (1872-1929) was an extraordinarily gifted impresario, curator and director who pushed theatrical performance to its limits and introduced Western Europe to the innovative and exciting avant-garde art and design of Russia.  Many of his Ballets Russes productions were true collaborations bringing together the most famous and progressive artists, composers and performers of the early 20th century.  This lecture illustrates the results of Diaghilev’s work with his collaborators, friends and contacts, bearing witness to his influence on modernism and on later developments in the visual arts.

Peter Scott is a lecturer and guide at Tate Britain, Tate Modern, the Bristol Art Gallery and the Lightbox in Woking.  He also lectures for many other organisations, including the Art Fund, Arts Societies and the National Trust and is an art history tutor for the WEA.
