George Rodrigue Bio

George Rodrigue




George Rodrigue (March 13, 1944 – December 14, 2013) was an American artist originally from New IberiaLouisiana, who in the late 1960s began painting Louisiana landscapes. His paintings often include moss-clad oak trees, which are common to an area of French Louisiana known as Acadiana. In the mid-1990s Rodrigue's Blue Dog paintings, based on a Cajun legend called loup-garou, catapulted him to worldwide fame.
