A pretty landscape in oil showing a river running past, obscured by blossoming trees and yellow wild flowers. The artist has signed to the lower left corner. The painting has been presented in a white box frame with glazing. There is a gallery label at the reverse. On wood panel.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration. The grain of the wood is visible through the paint across the whole surface of the painting and there is some minor splitting to the wood at the top edge. There is some minor undulation to the wood panel.

Artist Biography

Charles J. Fox's real name was Leo Fox, and he was an entrepreneur and son of an artist who had died in 1944. While Fox attended the unveilings, a painter named Irving Resnikoff worked alone in a New York studio, creating portraits that would enter the House Collection signed as CJ Fox. Resnikoff, an unknown, emigré artist who had fled Russia during the 1917 revolution, spent most of his career in obscurity. Unable to make a living from his abstract paintings, he worked for Fox, completing commissions of portraits of prominent Americans. Fox’s first contact with Congress was in 1943, when he proposed a government portrait commission. Eventually, Resnikoff, at the behest of Fox, painted portraits of a Minority Leader and nine different chairmen, concluding with Judiciary Committee Chairman Peter Rodino in 1977.
