Aaron Bohrod (1907 - 1992)
Aaron Bohrod was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1907, and studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and at the Art Students League of New York between 1926 and 1930, where he was influenced by the work of John Sloan. Returning to Chicago in 1930, he won a Guggenheim Fellowship and traveled across America, painting and absorbing the passing scene. During the Second World War, Bohrod worked as an artist, first for the Army Corps Of Engineers, followed by an assignment in Europe for Life magazine. In 1948, he was appointed artist in residence at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and remained in that capacity until 1973. In 1951, Bohrod was inducted into the National Academy of Design as an Associate member, and became a full member in 1953. His works can be found in the collections of many American museums.
