I'm sure I've seen a decent quality, decent sized picture of Alexandre Benois' terrifying curtain from Petrushka, but I can only find this and this right now.  Does anyone have a better image?

I collect many images, but haven't come across a large, complete image of this curtain. Sorry Fadedhour.

After spending a couple hours yesterday evening searching the depths of the Internet for this, I've actually just stumbled across it on Twitter: https://twitter.com/...389286466453504

Thanks for the link -- it's even spookier as a whole.

It's great, isn't it?  I've just seen the ballet this weekend and it looks wonderful huge.

I believe this scan is of better quality:

A great illustration, I agree!

Thanks!  I love this illustration - it's so unrelentingly weird and unsettling.  And it fits the ballet so well.
