Picasso acquired Lump the dachshund in 1957. He initially belonged to photographer David Douglas Duncan, but when he and Pablo met, it was seemingly true love. Lump was allowed anywhere on Picasso's property, including being the only creature allowed in Picasso's studio. Lump appeared in 54 of Picasso's works. Lump and Picasso were together for sixteen years, and died within months of each other.
