George Rodrigue was a student of art school in Los Angeles and in the 1960’s his only wish was to earn a living out of his paintings. He knocked on many doors but not many galleries (of the few that existed) took his paintings for selling.
The artist soon took to an advertisement in the paper and gave his home address for selling paintings. Soon people were floodingthe gallery-house.
In his early 20’s not many people would take him seriously since his paintings gave the impression of an artist of an older age. Today, you can see and buy some of the fabulous art work made by the artist himself. Most visitors stop by at the gallery to see the famous ‘Blue Dog’.

Rodrigue Studio Reviews & Ratings
George Rodrigue was such a great artist & brought smashing notoriety to Louisiana with the famous "Blue Dog". Glad I was able to meet him when he first opened his gallery in the French Quarter!
Home of the artist known for the blue dog that is famous in the area. I was unaware that he painted the dog into many more situations than I could ever imagine. Lovely to come and take a look around.
Definitely one the the most informative galleries. The story of the artist's life will give you chills. I loved how Blue Dog came to be. How an artist can take something scary and make it happy. I'm not an art lover, but this left me in awe. If you're in New Orleans, make this a stop. You won't regret it!
Great art, nice to walk around and take in the different pieces he created.
Owner was very helpful and told us about the artist's inspiration.
