This series of photographs, known ever since as Picasso’s “light drawings,” were made with a small electric light in a darkened room.

In 1949, Pablo Picasso collaborated with photographer Gjon Mili to produce a series of 'light paintings'. For five sessions in darkened rooms, a 67 year old Picasso drew hypnotic figures of centaurs, elephants, the female body and more, each image vanishing as it was being formed.

Back in 1949 a photographer for LIFE magazine by the name of Gjon Mili had taken some rarely seen shots of Pablo Picasso light painting.
