George Rodrigue is to Louisiana artists what Chef Paul Prudhomme is to Louisiana Chefs. They both grew up in Cajun country, and were passionate about their crafts from a young age. After years of hard work and dedication they were both lucky enough to be able to turn their passions into successful careers. Their contributions to art, cuisine, and culture have made a lasting mark in New Orleans, Louisiana, and beyond. Friends for thirty years, George & Chef Paul supported each other’s talents and efforts at festivals, fund-raisers, gallery exhibitions, and restaurant openings.
George Rodrigue painted Chef Paul’s portrait three times. The most famous (below on left, 1989) commemorates K-Paul’s Louisiana Kitchen in New York City (now closed). George also painted Chef in a large genre piece called The Great Cajun Omelet (below center 1984, size 48×65, oil on canvas).
