I remember reading an article about an artist (probably a painter) and want to read more about him. Problem is, I can't remember his name.
Here are some details I do remember:
-Began producing works in the 1950s and 1960s.
-Rejected the style of the New York School or whatever else was prevalent at the time.
-Produced hundreds of works of art in the evenings, when he came home from his normal job. These were not discovered until he was either very old or deceased.
I know it's not a lot to go on, but any suggestions would be much appreciated.
