George Rodrigue (American/Louisiana, 1944-2013), "Hells Kitchen", 2011, acrylic on canvas, signed lower right, signed, titled and dated en verso, 40 in. x 30 in., framed. Note: As George Rodrigue’s Blue Dog series progressed, the elements in the paintings often related less to his Cajun heritage and more to the people and objects that filled the artist’s day to day life. Rodrigue was friends with many chefs throughout his life – admiring whose who achieved a mastery of craft and unique style no matter the art form. Rodrigue’s original paintings, inspired by friends like Paul Prudhomme, located the chefs within the Acadiana landscape. Later, his Blue Dogs became the chefs with the addition of white coats, hats and aprons – gazing out from tables or as in the aptly-titled work offered here, “Hell’s Kitchen.”
