Representing Estate of Robert De Niro Sr., DC Moore Gallery Exhibits Retrospective

NEW YORK—Following its informative David Driskell survey in January, DC Moore Gallery recently paid tribute to another artist whose work evolved in the second half of the 20th century—Robert De Niro Sr. (1922-1993). The retrospective of paintings and drawings includes figurative works, still lifes and landscapes whose distinction is defined by expressive paint strokes. De Niro (the actor’s father) studied with Josef Albers and Hans Hoffman. The gallery represents the artist’s estate.

Robert De Niro, Sr.: Paintings and Drawings 1960-1993” was on view through the weekend, from March 22 to April 28, 2012.
