Artist Biography

Known for his Preservation Hall series of portraits and other scenes of New Orleans, Noel Rockmore was the son of New York artists, Floyd Davis and Gladys Rockmore Davis. Noel began studying painting when he was nine years old and was a child prodigy as a musician and artist. In 1947 he enrolled in the Art Students League, New York. Rockmore reached what for most artists would have been a career pinnacle when he was given a show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in 1952 at the young age of 24. A few years later, his paintings were shown at the Whitney Museum (1958), the Pennsylvania Academy in Philadelphia and the Cleveland Institute of Art.
