George Rodrigue A Blue Dog Spring painting for sale outlet online, painting
The George Rodrigue Prints we have for sale were originally created from a printing plate. This plate would then be used to create the specified limit of that particular Blue Dog Print series, The plates are then destroyed, to never be used again. From these existing plates and through many different "layers" the final Rodrigue Blue Dog Print is produced. These layers used to produce the final Blue Dog prints are considered to " proofs ".
Rodrigue is the most famous (some would say the most notorious) living artist in Louisiana. He's also the most commercially successful, raking in up to $2 million a year in gallery sales. His ubiquitous Blue Dog paintings trigger all sorts of comments. Avid collectors love the mystery of the sad-eyed pooch, while detractors point to Rodrigue's contract with Xerox as apropos, because, they claim, just like a copy machine, he produces the same image over and over and over again.
Like his work or not, Rodrigue is that one artist in a million who has been able to touch the collective unconscious of the public, creating art people are willing to pay astronomical prices for, and innovating before his work becomes stale. Just when you think the phenomenon is over, when the fickle art world will pass him by, he comes out with something fresh and new. Call it brilliant marketing acumen or creative genius, but any way you look at it, Rodrigue's work is a howling success.
Everywhere, that is, but here, where Rodrigue grew up, painted, and maintains a gallery. It has taken 40 years for Lafayette to acknowledge Rodrigues's place in the sun. This year, as the artist turns 65, Lafayette celebrates Rodrigue's Acadiana with a plethora of events. He will receive an honorary degree in May from UL Lafayette, where he studied painting as an undergraduate. He will be anointed with a SPARK lifetime achievement award from the UL College of the Arts during its Festival of the Arts later this month. A collection of early works that has been the property of UL for some 30 years is being shown for the first time at the Paul and Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum. A major retrospective of 140 works, mostly on loan from local collectors, will open at the Acadiana Center for the Arts March 14. Rodrigue will host a show of new work at his own gallery on South College April 3. While 2009 is the Year of the Ox, according to the Chinese calendar, here in Lafayette you can call it the year of the dog.
