    I own a 1921 Three Musician 25×23 signed Picasso. About two months ago I placed the art about 5 ft. on the floor facing me. While i was on the computer I looked up because a light was shining at me, i was freaked out because the light was coming from the painting. I watched the light for about 30 seconds; lt was a beam coming from a black circle on the painting. I was in a state of shock. I got up and turned it around so i couldn’t see it. The next day I told a friend about it and he didn’t believe me. He took his camera and snapped a picture of it and the beam showed up on the picture. He was unable to see anything with his bare eyes that would give that illusion. I have a picture that shows what I saw. We have tried many times to get another picture but has been unable able to do so.
