Steeped in the legends and Cajun myths of Rodrigue's Louisiana upbringing, Blue Dog catapulted to worldwide fame in the early 1990's and has never looked back.
George Rodrigue (1944–2013) was born and raised in Cajun Country, Louisiana. His studies at the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles spawned one of the greatest success stories in American art. From the late 1960s forward, he portrayed on his canvas what he feared was his dying heritage—including its land, people, traditions, and mythology. His Blue Dog Series, based on the French-Cajun loup-garou legend, catapulted him to worldwide fame, while his dark Renaissance-like landscapes developed into robust modern masterpieces. Rodriogue museum exhibitions set attendance records across the country.
