Photographs: Includes photographs
When Cajun artist George Rodrigue began his series of Blue Dogpaintings in 1984, he had no idea that they would consume thegreater part of his life for over two decades, and that themysterious Blue Dog - inspired by his studio dog-turned-model,Tiffany, and the Cajun loup-garou (were-wolf) folk legend - wouldbecome a wildly popular international icon as well. In anintroduction, Rodrigue reveals how an idea that originated inchildhood tales has now grown far beyond; his Blue Dogs have movedbeyond Louisiana into formerly uncharted territory and now expresslarger concepts about contemporary life.
