Electric Pablo

Life Magazine has released a series of photographs from the 1949 collaboration between Pablo Picasso and Gjon Mili, the pioneer of stroboscopic light in photography. I’m familiar with the iconic photograph of Picasso and his centaur, but was never able to fully grasp the inventive technique until now. It’s hard to believe that Picasso’s passing strokes, made with just a small electric light, came together so skillfully and were captured so brilliantly on film.

    As an artist and art historian, I have always had a great appreciation for Picasso’s work, although I have never been a fan of his signature aesthetic. He was truly a genius, as is evident from the progression of his style from his early years toward later in life (really, it is enlightening). These photos give me a whole new appreciation of him – his strokes are so confident and so much a part of him that you can see an entire painting in just the trail of a tiny light from the waving of his arm – amazing!
