George Rodrigue: The Cajun Landscape

November 1, 2018–February 10, 2019

On November 1, 2018, LSU Museum of Art will open an exhibition featuring early landscape paintings by Louisiana artist George Rodrigue (1944–2013). Rodrigue was born and raised in New Iberia, Louisiana, the heart of Cajun country. For more than four decades, Rodrigue sought to depict his Cajun heritage through his work. The oak tree was a primary feature inspiring many landscape paintings in the early 1970s, which evolved to include Cajun people and traditions, as well as his interpretations of myths such as Jolie Blonde and Evangeline.

Rodrigue Gallery Selections
A special selection of available original works on view through 2018

George Rodrigue (1944-2013) brought his Louisiana inspired art to Carmel-by-the-Sea in 1992 when he opened his first location known as Galerie Blue Dog. In 2000, Rodrigue and his wife Wendy made a home in the nearby hills. The quiet refuge enabled the artist to paint hundreds of paintings in his spacious, sun-drenched studio. While his roots remained in Louisiana, Carmel always held a special place in his heart.
