On the suggestion of friend and fellow photographer, Robert Capa, Duncan traveled to France to meet Picasso in 1956. Picasso would become a friend and the subject of seven photographic books. Their friendship lasted until Picasso's death. Picasso referred to Duncan as his "Ishmael" and Duncan called Picasso "Maestro." With photographs of Picasso and his dog taken in 1957, Duncan produced a photographic book on Picasso and his dachshund Lump titled, "Picasso & Lump: A Dachshund's Odyssey" published in 2006. Our image is not included in the book. Note: Lump is German roughly translated into English as rascal or rogue. Framed in black wood with dark gray archival mat and conservation glass so that the photographer's stamp shows through a window on the back. Frame measures 15 x 19 1/2 inches with image shown measuring 8 1/2 x 12 inches. A striking ensemble.
