「Style Inspiration」 This Noel Rockmore Poster from 1979 depicts a classic New Orleans Mardi Gras scene with the floats, partiers in costume, the balconies in the French Quarter. It is numbered, dated and signed by Rockmore. A great piece for the art collector, and brings show-stopping energy to the center of your gallery wall or a kitschy bar.
「History」 Noel Rockmore was an undiscovered American Master of the last half of the 20th Century who split his lifetime between New York and New Orleans. He was recognized and had shows at The Whitney, MoMA, the Met & the Hirshhorn as Noel Davis before he was 28.
At 31, he moved to New Orleans and began working with Larry Borenstein, an art collector. In the 1960s, Borenstein employed Rockmore as a kind of resident painter for a new society he'd formed with Jaffe to preserve traditional New Orleans jazz music. The society would become Preservation Hall.
Rockmore was commissioned to paint the old-time musicians. He captured the mood, scent, touch and smoke of New Orleans jazz and its musicians - Punch Miller, Percy Humphrey, Louis Nelson, Sweet Emma and Billie and DeDe Pierce, and scores of others.
