1. Tanis Reading. Kalman Aron (Latvian, 1924-).

    At seven, Aron had his first gallery show.The Latvian president commissioned the boy to paint his official portrait and arranged his fine art education. In 1941, the Nazis invaded Latvia, massacring many thousands of Jews - including his father. Over four years, Aron was imprisoned in seven different camps. He drew portraits of guards who sometimes paid him with morsels of food.
