Hidden Image in Picasso's 'The Blue Room' Revealed
After five years of galleries and art institutions banding together, a hidden image under Picasso's 'The Blue Room' has finally been recreated. Infrared imagery revealed a bearded man in a jacket and bow tie with three rings and a hand resting on the side of his face. The image required turning the canvas on its side for analysis. It appears Picasso painted over the original in a moment of inspiration while in Paris. Now, art experts are busy trying to identify who exactly this bearded man was.
