Fascinating Photographs Show Pablo Picasso Painting With Light
In 1949, legendary artist Pablo Picasso—in collaboration with photographer Gjon Mili, who was then working for LIFE magazine—created a series of images that shows himself “drawing with light”.
Using a small electric light, Picasso produced these short-lived light drawings in a dark room, where two separate cameras captured them on film for posterity.
These photographs—in which Picasso could be seen painting light versions of centaurs, bulls and Greek profiles—are surprisingly intimate, because they not only captured the art, but the artist and his process as well.
