Art movements are powerful. So powerful, they can obscure great artists that don't fit the genre. The artist's only hope is to be "rediscovered" after death. Such was the case for one painter whose work was returned to the spotlight by the man who knew him best, one of the world's most famous actors, who also happened to be the artist's son.
