DESCRIPTION:  Published by Associated American Artists, New York City. A truly remarkable portrait, which exceeds strict rendering, because Benton succeeded in portraying a human being with feeling. The viewer is prompted to wonder what Aaron was all about, his life, his personal story. The latest catalogue raisonne informs us that Aaron was invited to serve as a model during Benton's class taught at the Kansas City Art Institute. Benton's oil painting of this same gentleman is included in the permanent collection of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia.
