Animal Wednesday - Picasso & Lump

If you have ever had a pet and most of us that participate in AW do have pets, I think that you would enjoy this book by David Douglas Duncan, Picasso & Lump A Dachshund's Odyssey. It is a fun, mostly  pictures, story about a dog and its famous owner told by the friend, author/photographer. It shows intimate surroundings that only dogs and friends would know. Many famous paintings and sculptures as were done by Picasso. Just a real fun read. I found this copy at our library. I hope yours has it too. If not you can go here.


The forward to this book is written by Paloma PicassoThevenet. Which reminds me that I can't ever find Paloma Picasso perfume any more. I just hate that. ha... I do digress....I hope you all have a wonderful Animal Wednesday.

Hi! I just joined Animal Wednesday and am visiting around. I feel so privileged to be connected to so many wonderful artists! Thanks very much for this reccomendation, I had no idea Picasso had any pets. I will definitely check it out. But now I have that stupid song "Lump" in my head and the Weird Al parody "Gump" which is actually pretty funny! HAW, Cheers! Susan

I was obsessed with Picasso at one time. That's also my brother's nickname for me.
That explains why Picasso drew so many dachsunds! You'd think I would have known that.
I was disappointed to find out Picasso was such a womanizer. He just got points back for being a dog lover!

HAW!!
