This picture, provided by the Shirley Marvin Collection, shows a mixed media picture, "New Orleans French Market," by Noel Rockmore dated 1959. Rockmore produced some 15,000 oil paintings, temperas, collages and sketches over his career and then died in obscurity. But from now until the end of January, his works, including this piece, are on view at the LaGrange Art Museum in Georgia. The retrospective is called “Creative Obscurity: The Genius of Noel Rockmore.” (AP Photo/Shirley Marvin Collection) less
