The portrait of Interior and Insular Affairs Committee Chairman Wayne Aspinall is one of 10 paintings in the House of Representatives commissioned from the same artist. Court documents later revealed that businessman Leo Fox took portrait commissions, but contracted artist Irving Resnikoff to make the paintings. The resulting works were all signed “C. J. Fox” or Charles J. Fox. This image, based on a photograph, shows Aspinall holding one book while another lies open on the table beside him.
