David Douglas Duncan / Picasso and Lump

David Douglas Duncan
Pablo Picasso and Lump

In 1957, renowned war photographer, David Douglas Duncan, took his camera and his Dachshund, Lump (Rascal in German), to shoot his favorite new subject, Pablo Picasso. Upon arrival at Picasso’s Villa Californie, Lump made himself at home and stayed for six years. There, he sat beside the famously private artist as he worked, found his way into 44 paintings, and became “the only dog Picasso took in his arms.” Relish Lump’s fabulous life in Duncan’s wonderful book, Picasso & Lump: A Dachshund’s Odyssey.
