Picasso Painting With Light… Totally Brilliant

If you already thought Picasso’s work was mega cool, you’ll love these photographs shot for a 1949 issue of LIFE Magazine. The images show Picasso in Vallauris, France painting with the little lights that ice skaters of the time would attach to their skates before practicing at night. There are plenty more images are in the LIFE gallery.
