Seeking families with paintings of relatives by Chicago artist Isador Langhaus (1910-1950) #usa

Good morning,

I recently discovered that my paternal great-grandmother?s
Romanian-born nephew?Isador Langhaus?was an artist by profession. See
1940 US census attached.

He painted a portrait of his father Jacob Langhaus (also attached)?my
great-grandmother?s brother. I am assuming Isador Langhaus painted
many other people?s relatives in the Chicago area from about
1910-1940/50.

I am asking if anyone else has a portrait by Isador Langhaus to please
let me know so I can create a virtual exhibition of his work, perhaps
through JewishGen. Please check the artist signature on any family
paintings you may have. He seems to me to be quite a fine artist who
deserves some recognition after all these years.
