Picasso Discovery

Art experts have found another masterpiece beneath Pablo Picasso’s “The Blue Room.” Using x-rays and infrared lights, they uncovered a picture of a man wearing a bowtie and with his face in his hand. Experts believe the man is Picasso at 19 years old. They think he created the portrait when he was just starting out and broke, likely the reason that he reused the expensive canvas when inspiration struck.
