George Rodrigue (1944-2013) was born and rasied 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 forwad, he portrayed on his canvas what he feared was his dying heritage - including its land, people, traditioins, and mythology. In the early 1990s Rodrigue's 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. Today, Rodrique museum exhibitions set attendance records across the country, and his original New Orleans French Quarter gallery continues to share his legacy through ongoing installations from his archives. Blue Dog transports the viewer into surreal scenes from Rodrigue's imagination. He said, "There is a spiritual quality to blue. The dark night sky affects my mood and my paintings, replacing the earthy greens and browns of my early works. As I grow older, my mind expands. I suspend reality on my canvas with greater confidence, exploring not just the trees and grass, but aslo hte mysterious and the mystical."
