Art experts find a secret picture in a painting by Pablo Picasso.

There is a brown dog. It has a red bow around its neck. Picasso paints over the dog. Modern technology helps experts see the dog. But people can see the dog’s eyes and ears with the naked eye. The painting is called ’’Le Moulin de la Galette’’. Picasso makes the painting in 1900. He is 19 years old. The painting is at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

Experts find other secret pictures in paintings by Picasso. He makes these paintings between 1900 and 1904.

Difficult words: secret (something what other people do not know or see), bow (a piece of ribbon around the neck), with the naked eye (without help of glasses or other things).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
