Blue Dog Speaks PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Blue Dog Speaks free pdf This is a collection of Cajun artist George Rodrigue's Blue Dog paintings. The mysterious Blue Dog has become a wildly popular international icon. This is the first book to prominently emphasise the insightful titles of Rodrigue's artwork. When Cajun artist George Rodrigue began his series of Blue Dog paintings in 1984, he had no idea that they would consume the greater part of his life for over two decades, and that the mysterious Blue Dog-inspired by his studio dog-turned-model, Tiffany, and the Cajun loup-garou folk legend-would become a wildly popular international icon as well. Blue Dog Speaks is the first book to prominently emphasise Rodrigue's painting titles, one of the most important elements in the creation of a Blue Dog painting, alongside the works. Rodrigue used Blue Dog painting titles to provide insight, whether humorous or nostalgic or sad, into the human condition.

About George Rodrigue

The Blue Dog, created by George Rodrigue (1944-2013) is one of the most recognizable images in the world of contemporary art. Steeped in the legends and Cajun myths of Rodrigue's Louisiana upbringing, Blue Dog catapulted to worldwide fame in the early 1990s, and has never looked back. Featured in high-profile advertising campaigns (Absolut and Xerox) and on the set of TV's Friends, Blue Dog has been on an unprecedented journey-from a single painting hung in Rodrigue's gallery in New Orleans to becoming an international pop icon. Four US presidents have commissioned portraits with Blue Dog, and Rodrigue's celebrity clients include Tom Brokaw, Whoopi Goldberg, Harry Connick Jr., and Sylvester Stallone. Always a crowd-pleaser, the Blue Dog series has set attendance records at museum shows and exhibitions across the country.
