1956: A Young Brigitte Bardot Watching Pablo Picasso Paint At His Studio (Colorized)
Here's an unlikely duo: the very young, very hot Brigitte Bardot with the aging artist Pablo Picasso, co-founder of the cubist movement. This colorized photograph from 1956 documents the time when they met at his studio on the French Riviera.
The famous cubist painter had a reputation for seducing much younger women and pursuing affairs that could best be described as pedophilic, yet the sultry Bardot was not among his conquests. Perhaps it was because she was a fresh-faced 21-year-old, and he was a musty 74-year-old at the time that they met. Perhaps it was because Bardot, despite her sexpot image, was a strong, independent woman. Or perhaps it was because the entire meeting was photographed by Life magazine.
