Ingre's Violin

Refers to the French neoclassical artist Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres, who while famous for his paintings was also incredibly talented though less well known for his skill on the violin.

The phrase refers to a person who is known for one talent but is so exceptional at another unrelated talent they could be equally well know for the second if not for the first.
Everyone knows joe is a great baseball player but his work as a photographer is a bit of an Ingre's Violin.
