Pablo Picasso

This undated handout image provided by The Phillips Collection shows an infrared image of Pablo Picasso’s "The Blue Room," painted in 1901. Scientists and art experts have found a hidden painting beneath the painting. Advances in infrared imagery reveal a bow-tied man with his face resting on his hand, with three rings on his fingers.
