Pablo Picasso – Light Drawings


Pablo Picasso is without a doubt one of the world’s most infamous and captivating artists. That is what made these light drawing photos so interesting to us. You get to see a side of the Spanish artist that was not often seen.


The photos were taken by LIFE magazine’s Gijon Mili in 1949. Mili was profiling Picasso in the South of France and the photo series was part of the visit.

LIFE magazine had this to say about Mili & Picasso’s get together, “This series of photographs, known ever since as Picasso’s ‘light drawings,’ were made with a small electric light in a darkened room; in effect, the images vanished as soon as they were created – and yet they still live, six decades later, in Mili’s playful, hypnotic images.
