Home on the Moon, designed in 1991 by George Rodrigue, is a newly released print in 2022. This Estate Edition of 175 measures 12 x 24 inches and is available for purchase from Rodrigue Studios or online.
The early reproductions of Rodrigue’s Cajun paintings and early Blue Dog series were lithographic posters, using a four-color process, often mass-produced for special events in open, or large editions. Technology at the time didn’t allow for a more complicated image of the full spectrum of color. However, by the early 2000s, improvements in computer programming now allowed the artist and his printmakers to more easily separate colors in creating high-quality silkscreens. Rodrigue reproduced a handful of images that were originally Cajun lithograph posters as silkscreens during this time later in his career.
Home on the Moon, originally painted in 1991, was one of the very few early Blue Dog paintings ever reproduced as a lithograph poster. This new 2022 printing marks the first time one of the early images used in a Blue Dog lithograph has been reprinted as a true silkscreen in the tradition that Rodrigue embraced later in his career. The silkscreen release in an edition of 175 captures all the nuances of the range of tones of the figures from the original painting and is stamped with the artist’s proprietary Estate stamp.
