    Picasso - VALLAURIS, FRANCE, 1949... One of the earliest examples of light painting in photography.. Photo by Gjon Mili for Life Magazine “Picasso Draws A Centaur In The Air.”

  • Patricia Ubillus

    In 1949, while on assignment for Life Magazine, Gjon Mili was sent to photograph Pablo Picasso at his home in South France. While there Mili showed Picasso some of his light painting photographs of the figure skaters. Pablo was immediately inspired, he took a penlight and began to draw in the air. Mili set up his camera and captured the images. This brief meeting yielded what would become known as Pablo Picasso’s Light Drawings. The most famous is known as “Picasso Draws a Centaur”.

    I like his art too... Pablo Picasso, 1949, by Gjon Mili. “The photographic effect was created by opening the camera’s shutter while Picasso was in the dark, crouched over to begin his instant masterpiece – this static pose captured by a momentary flash. Again in darkness after this instantaneous flash of light, Picasso quickly draws his signature image in the air with a ‘light pencil.’”
