Synopsis: Rodrigue: The Sanders Collection (Rodrigue Studio / Hardcover $85.00 / ISBN: 978-0-692-28195-6 / Publication Date: April 25, 2015) contains 100 full-color images that cover the breadth of Rodrigue's career, including his classic Louisiana landscapes, Cajun culture scenes, and the iconic Blue Dog series which catapulted the artist to worldwide fame.Lavishly illustrated and designed, the new volume features more than 70 rarely seen and never- before-published images from the private collection of Don Sanders, Houston businessman, philanthropist, and longtime friend of George Rodrigue. An introductory essay examines the unique relationship between artist and collector, and poignantly describes how their friendship influenced each other's lives. Hall of Fame baseball pitcher Nolan Ryan, a friend to both Sanders and Rodrigue, provides a heartfelt Foreword.Blue Dog fans and collectors will be surprised and delighted to see another side to George Rodrigue's artistic endeavors beyond the canvas – sculptures, glass renderings, photography, mixed media pieces, art installations, silkscreens, sketches, and even wine labels. The Sanders collection also features many paintings of Blue Dog wearing different coats of colors, along with rarely seen Rodrigue paintings of cats. Don Sanders, a dog lover and a cat lover, is an animal rights activist who founded the animal adoption and rescue organization in Houston called “Friends for Life.”
