Picasso & Lump: A Dachshund's Odyssey (ISBN 0821258109) is a book by David Douglas Duncan that features professional photographs of Pablo Picasso and his dachshund, Lump. The book, published in 2006 by Thames & Hudson Ltd, gives an insight into Picasso's later life, and Picasso - the man, not the image. The book contrasts black-and-white photos of Picasso, his wife Jacqueline and Lump with Picasso's colourful interpretations of painting Las Meninas (that happen to feature Lump). Picasso & Lump: A Dachshund's Odyssey is a coffee table book that brings to light the story of a lucky dog who became a loved pet and an icon of modern art.

The book is alternatively known as, Lump: The Dog Who Ate a Picasso.
