Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810946270, Hardcover)George Rodrigue was born in New Iberia, in the heart of French Louisiana. During the mid-1980s, inspired by his beloved dog Tiffany, Rodrigue transformed the image of the original Cajun werewolf dog - the loup-garou - into what would become an international pop icon named Blue Dog. Over the years Blue Dog has captured the hearts of US presidents, Hollywood stars and ordinary people alike. This monograph of Rodrigue's work details the development of each of his artistic series from beginning to end, describing the ways in which one series leads to the next through Rogrigue's distinctive treatment of design, colour and shape. Although the main text ends with the latest "Blue Dog" series paintings, an afterword allows a glimpse of the artist's "Hurricanes" series.

"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retrospective of the artist's forty-year-career, provides a comprehensive view of the Rodrigue oeuvre, including many unpublished and never-before-seen works."--Book Cover
