"George Aarons came to the United States from Russia when he was ten years old. He studied art at the Boston Museum School, then moved to New York to study with Paris-trained artists at the Beaux-Arts Institute of Design. After graduating, he established studios in Brookline and Gloucester, Massachusetts, and began work as a sculptor. He cast large idealized figures in bronze and marble and also experimented with direct carving in wood and stone. Aarons produced several monumental pieces for the Works Progress Administration, including a ten-foot relief for the South Boston Housing Project, and the façade of the Baltimore Hebrew Congregational Building" (Smithsonian American Art Museum, Luce Foundation Center for American Art, online catalog, http://americanart.si.edu/luce/artist.cfm?key=344&artistmedia=255&object=586&subkey=2).
Another example of Thomas Jefferson is in the collection of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum, Hyde Park, New York.
