Picasso painting found under Picasso painting!

Something many struggling artists resort to.. painting over old paintings.

Hidden Picasso goes on show

“A “secret” painting by the young Pablo Picasso was unveiled at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao yesterday after experts found it hidden beneath layers of paint on another of his canvasses.

The 104-year-old painting was yesterday hailed as Picasso’s first Paris picture, painted during a visit in 1900 when he was 19.”

  1. Picasso painted on top of several of his “finished” canvas, sometime
    totaly changing the motive of them.
    For him, a painting was never finished.
