About the Artist "Charles Fox was the son of a well-known Austrian painter, who taught him to paint as a child. Portraits at one time credited to him include J. Edgar Hoover, Senator Strom Thurmond, and Treasury Secretary Henry Fowler. NOTE-There is some controversy regarding whether or not Fox actually painted any of the portraits with which he has been credited. In 1978, after a question arose from the Internal Revenue Service on how to tax income from the paintings, Leo Fox (having presented himself as Charles J. or C.J. Fox) told a tax court judge that his credited paintings were actually done by New York artist and Russian immigrant Irving Resnikoff (1897-1988). Fox and Resnikoff both asserted that Fox neither had the ability nor training to have done the paintings himself. Resnikoff had been given photographs to work from in painting all of the portraits attributed to C.J. Fox." -- United States Department of Justice webpage, viewed on December 11, 1013.
