View of two large light-colored Afghan hounds, standing outside. The hound in the foreground, Kabul, looking down and off to the side, appears dejected.

"Kabul, the regal Afghan, spent his last days gazing at the villa as though remembering those early years when he was constantly at the side of Picasso and Jacqueline. He died in the autumn of 1975, shortly after this photograph was taken. Sauterelle, his youthful companion, now shares Notre-Dame de Vie with Igor, the black Afghan from Spain." The Silent Studio, p. 19.
