Robert De Niro may best be known as an Oscar-winning actor, but in a new documentary he takes on the role of a devoted son as he spotlights his own artist father, Robert Sr., for his influential but not well-known works in the New York City abstract expressionist art movement.Robert Sr. grew up in a conservative Italian-American family in New York and married fellow artist Virginia Admiral, with whom he had one child, De Niro.The documentary explores Robert Sr.'s career as well as his role as a loving father, with whom De Niro said he had a very close relationship with. But as De Niro's acting career took off, he felt his father was somewhat resentful that his own work had never been recognized by a bigger audience.
