Picasso in mist

Shortly before midnight on a misty night the Picasso in Daley Plaza looks more mysterious than usual. The two light fixtures (only one is shown here) pointed at its nose cut through the fog and create this surreal atmosphere that is equal parts light and dark. Speculation abounds that Picasso created this 50-foot (15 m) sculpture after model Sylvette David. If so, on a misty night it’s as if she’s peering upward into the light. On a more typical night she merely bathes in the glow from above.Picasso in mist
