On June 19, 2020, in Dallas, Texas, at Heritage Auction’s Modern & Contemporary Art event, a George Rodrigue Blue Dog painting broke records for the auction house and worldwide for a painting of its size. According to ArtDaily:
One of the sale’s biggest surprises occurred early on, when it came time for George Rodrigue’s beloved dog Tiffany to go hunting for a new owner. After a vigorous round of bidding, involving clients both online and on the phone, Rodrigue’s 14-by-11-inch Blue Dog, painted in 1996, sold for $112,500 – more than nine times its pre-auction estimate and a world record for a Blue Dog of that size. It was also the highest price Heritage has ever realized for a work by the late Louisiana artist featuring his blue spaniel/terrier with the white nose and yellow eyes.
