DeNiro, Acrylic on canvas 76 x 60 1992

“DeNiro for his generation is an indian chief.”–G

In similar colors and fluidity to ‘MLK’ DeNiro appears. His face also slightly merging into the background. DeNiro is calm, elegant, imposing as a gangster, even regal with the vertical dripping lines of gold and purple falling down the canvas like curtains behind him. The tone of DeNiro’s face is dark andstark. Umbrellas of shadows under his forehead and under his nose. Chiaroscuro of reds, golds, and black. Poise, still, menace, and royalty.
