An early Picasso painting from SFMOMA's collection, Scène de Rue, shows a somber Paris street scene. But recent conservation work has revealed the painting's mysterious double life: X-ray images show a colorful, energetic nightclub scene beneath its surface. Learn about how Will Shank, SFMOMA's former head conservator, and Tim Svenonius worked together to digitally reconstruct the hidden image.
