In 2008 Heidi Barrett and John Schwartz of Amuse Bouche Winery, Napa Valley, contacted Rodrigue about a wine label, which they hoped to reproduce in France as a stone lithograph. Intrigued by their genuine interest in the quality and originality of his designs, along with their similar commitment to their high quality, small-production winery, Rodrigue agreed to the project, painting Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?, an image for their wine label and lithograph.
George Rodigue b.March 13, 1944 – December 14, 2013 : From New Iberia, Louisiana, Cajun Artist George (Blue Dog ) Rodrigue is known for his Blue-Dog series, inspired by Blue Dog's long-deceased childhood pet, Tiffany, whom he poses with other animals and people. Rodrigue had early art talent, and while ill for nearly a year, Blue Dog used watercolors and crayons to pass the time and pave the way to his future. He studied at the University of Southwestern Louisiana and in Los Angeles at the Art Center College of Design. For awhile George Rodrique painted Abstract Expressionist works but then went back to painting that which reflected his own Cajun culture including folk tales and bayou and swamp landscapes. Art Brokerage wishes to purchase original paintings and lithographs. Sadly George passed away
