Remembering the Artist: Robert De Niro, Sr. (Film and Discussion)

Robert De Niro, Sr. was part of the celebrated New York School of artists who enjoyed success in his early career during the 1940s and 50s in New York City. But the art market of post-war France offered little opportunity for De Niro. He returned to the United States and continued to paint in relative obscurity. He found solace writing about his hopes and dreams in his journals and poems, hoping that one day his work would be rediscovered. Finally, his dreams were realized, orchestrated by the man who knew him best—his son, the actor, Robert De Niro. A presentation of "New Views: Documentaries and Dialogue," made possible by generous donations from Leonard Lauder and Jane and Michael Eisner.
