Minotaure 7 (1935).

This image, enlarged to 9 meters, was one of the pieces of scenery for the ballet "Rendez-vous" by Jacques Prèvert. With a curtain by Picasso, music by Kosma, & choreography by Roland Petit, the work was presented at Paris' Sarah Bernhardt Theatre in 1945. According to Brassaï the print is contemporary with the negative.
