Fodor's 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 can be found in thousands of manifestations in various settings in the cult artist's paintings. Though Rodrigue died in late 2013, his principal gallery, a space rather eerily lined almost entirely with paintings of the blue dog, remains open.
