Artificial Intelligence Helped Seeing Lost Work of Picasso



Pablo Picasso was one of those artists who discarded older works in favor of new ones. Pablo Picasso is considered one of the most important artists of the twentieth century, and many would like to enjoy some of those lost paintings again. But how can we do so without removing the top layer of paint from the paintings?


Picasso's "The Blind Man's Meal" was deciphered by UCL scientists using spectroscopic imaging, artificial intelligence, and 3D printing to decipher what lies beneath the surface of the painting. But it wasn't until 2010 that it was discovered that Picasso had covered up something important in that painting with a new piece of art. In order to bring that work to light, researchers have now performed multiple scans, which have been enhanced with artificial intelligence techniques. As a result, Picasso's painting "The Lonesome Crouching Nude," from his Blue period, was created. Furthermore, it is extremely detailed, to the point where you can see three-dimensional brushstrokes.


This technique was used to paint over a large number of Picasso's Blue Period paintings. Scientists believe that the artist made the decision reluctantly because he was saddened by the prospect of losing one of his most important works. In any case, the need was genuine: Picasso was an up-and-coming artist with limited financial resources, and materials were prohibitively expensive at the time. This is one of the reasons why scientists believe Picasso would be pleased with their work.


"I believe Picasso actively welcomed such forensics, as he stated himself: "I simply painted the images that rose before my eyes." Anthony Bourached, a UCL researcher specializing in Machine Learning and Behavioural Neuroscience, added: " Other people will have to figure out what the hidden messages mean." Is it possible that Picasso, like Leonardo, had a helicopter in mind? Or was he daydreaming about a technological breakthrough that would allow him to recover his lost or incomplete work? "There is no doubt that La Vie alludes to a hidden secret."


One of Picasso's most famous works from the Blue period is "The Blind Man's Meal," which was completed in 1903. As a result, for 118 years, "The Lonesome Crouching Nude" remained hidden from view. In terms of age, it is most likely not much older than "The Blind Man's Meal." Similar figures can be seen in Picasso's 1903 painting "La Vie," which may indicate that Picasso was lacking in that particular nudity at the time of the painting.


Many artists, including Picasso, have painted over their earlier works, and Picasso is not alone in doing so. As a result, who knows – perhaps new works of art by long-dead artists are on their way, thanks to artificial intelligence solutions.
