On September 10, 2018, Neal Auction Company will host “Life & Legacy,” a special presentation honoring one of New Orleans’ most beloved artists, George Rodrigue (1944-2013).  For this unique event, Wendy Rodrigue – the artist’s wife, model, muse, and business partner – will examine original paintings from Neal Auction’s upcoming Major Fall Estates Auction (Sept. 15-16) as well as artwork from Rodrigue’s own archives and the couple’s private collection.

About Wendy Rodrigue

In 2017, Wendy began a statewide tour in which she shared original artwork and personal insights from her life with George Rodrigue.  Originally conceived as a statewide education project focused on arts integration throughout Louisiana A+ Schools, the “Life & Legacy” tour will expand this fall to include schools, museums, and other venues nationwide. Neal Auction’s “Life & Legacy” event will be followed by a signing of Wendy’s book, The Other Side of the Painting (UL Press).  Proceeds from the book sales will benefit the arts in education programs of the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts. Wendy’s blog “Musings of an Artist’s Wife” remains the primary source for biographical information about George Rodrigue and the history of his work. www.wendyrodrigue.com. Neal Auction Company is considered the leading auctioneer of the American South. www.nealauction.com
