Description

Born and raised in the heart of French Louisiana, George Rodrigue is best known for his Blue Dog paintings. Rodrigue, who began painting in the third grade while bedridden with polio, had already won local acclaim for his rich portrayals of the landscape and people he grew up with when Blue Dog transformed the image of the original Cajun werewolf dog into an international pop icon. This accessible paperback edition of "The Art of George Rodrigue" is a retrospective featuring 265 paintings spanning Rodrigue's career. With text by art historian Ginger Danto, this book continues to be the definitive guide to Rodrigue's work, documenting his artistic development as his subjects shifted from majestic oak trees to Cajun fishermen to the incomparable Blue Dog.
