Born and raised in the heart of French Louisiana, artist George Rodrigue is best known for his Blue Dog paintings, which catapulted him to worldwide fame in the early 1990s. Rodrigue's body of work, however, encompasses far more than Blue Dog. Sure to delight Blue Dog fans and art aficionados alike, this volume, the first retrospective of the artist's forty-year-career, provides a comprehensive view of the Rodrigue oeuvre, including many unpublished and never-before-seen works.
