Remembering the Artist. Robert De Niro, Sr., the new documentary that screened at Sundance and premiered this past Monday on HBO, is definitely one to watch. De Niro, Sr. was an important painter in the New York School whose work walked the line between Abstract Expressionism and European Modernism. He studied at Black Mountain College under Josef Albers and in New York and Provincetown under Hans Hofmann. He exhibited his work at Peggy Guggenheim’s Art of This Century gallery and in group shows with Mark Rothko, Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock. He received a Guggenheim Fellowship and taught at the Cooper Union, the New School and the School of Visual Arts. I very much like his work and I very much liked this film. And if you happen to be in Washington, DC between now and July 31, you can see his work in a solo exhibition at the DC Moore Gallery.
