Sunday Evening Art Gallery — George Rodrigue

Meet Blue Dog. Possibly one of the most iconic pop art figures created by artist George Rodrigue.

Are You Lonesome Tonight


Blue Dog Oak


Blue Dog has been everywhere from the permanent collection of the Smithsonian to the White House and all over the world.


Butterfly Blues


Born and raised in New Iberia, Louisiana,  George began painting during the third grade while bedridden with polio.

Rollin on the River


Later in life, his art studies at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette followed by the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena gave him a foundation that spawned one of the greatest success stories in southern art.

Mardi Gras 2010


Rodrigue was a gifted artist who started out painting the landscape and the rich history of Louisiana and the Cajun people. But that all changed when he found his model in his studio: a photograph of his dog, Tiffany, who had died.

Good Morning Acadiana


He Stopped Loving Her Today


“I’m expressing the feelings of mankind today through the Blue Dog,” George said.  “The dog is always having problems of the heart, of growing up, the problems of life.”

I Am an Artist


Space Chair


His heart was in his work, in his love of his blue dog and his beautiful wife and loving kids.
