Picasso's largest-ever painting on show in London

275x250.jpgThe largest-ever painting by Pablo Picasso - measuring 10.4m by 11.7m - has gone on show in London for the first time.

Picasso created the monstrous cloth for a one-act ballet "Le train bleu"  by the Ballets Russes in 1924.

However, while he designed and signed the piece himself, it was actually finished by seven other artists.

The Victoria and Albert Museum snapped up the cloth in 1968 but have kept it in storage since then.

It's now going on show at the as part of a exhibition dedicated to the Russian ballet company and you can't miss it… quite literally.
