About the Artist

IMG_0410George Rodrigue (1944-2013) started his career by painting Louisiana bayous, live oak trees, Cajuns and the legends and folklore of the Acadiana area.  It was from one of these Cajun legends about a ghostlike werewolf dog that the Blue Dog series was born.

“The Blues Brothers connection with the Blue Dog was a natural for me, and I had fun, from idea to execution, painting their faces blue with the Blue Dog." -G.R.

"I first thought to paint the dog black, as if in mourning. Instead I painted it without color at all, the blue joy drained by shock and grief. For many years the dog has had yellow, happy eyes. On this day, however, the eyes are red, indicating a heavy heart." -G.R.

George Rodrigue painted "God Bless America" on the night of September 11, 2001, acrylic on canvas, 40x40 inches.
