Collection of the U.S. House of Representatives
Peter Rodino’s Judiciary Committee Chairman portrait was unveiled on May 12, 1977. Rodino is best known for his role in the Nixon impeachment hearings, from which he gained recognition for his calm, measured demeanor, which is reflected in his portrait. This is one of several portraits in the House Collection produced under the pseudonym C. J. Fox. It was later revealed that businessman Leo Fox took portrait commissions, but contracted artists—in this case, Irving Resnikoff—to make the paintings. The resulting works were all signed “C. J. Fox” or Charles J. Fox.
