Rodrigue Studio Review

Cajun artist George Rodrigue began his career as a painter with moody yet stirring portraits of rural Cajun life, but he gained popular renown in 1984 when he started painting blue dogs, inspired by the spirit of his deceased pet, Tiffany. Since then, the blue dog has found thousands of manifestations in various settings in the cult artist's paintings. Of late, Rodrigue has ventured a few new non-blue-dog works, which, after nearly two decades of singular focus, seems like a radical move. Rodrigue's principal gallery, a single room rather eerily lined almost entirely with paintings of the blue dog (and her evil red twin), sits directly behind St. Louis Cathedral.
