Provincetown Exhibition Highlights Work of Robert De Niro Sr.

    Painting included in “Remembering the Artist: Robert De Niro, Sr.”

Father to the famous actor, Robert De Niro Sr. was a respected artist in postwar New York — by all accounts, a talented iconoclast often at odds with the art world. A figurative painter who brought abstract and Expressionist touches to compositions that recall Matisse, De Niro Sr. earned some early acclaim and, in 1946, a prestigious solo exhibition at Peggy Guggenheim’s Art of This Century Gallery.

“Robert De Niro, Sr. (1922-1993): Selected Works,” opens at the Hudson D. Walker Gallery at the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center this Saturday and runs through Aug. 3. The show was curated by Megan Fox Kelly, adviser to the artist’s estate and consultant on the HBO film made by De Niro's actor-son. Robert De Niro Jr. worked closely with her on it, as he does with all exhibitions of De Niro Sr.’s work, including one running until July 31 at New York’s DC Moore Gallery, the exclusive representative of his father’s estate.
