The modern rise in celebrity culture has seen a huge boom in courtroom art, with TV news programs and newspapers commissioning artists to provide images of the latest celebrity court case, sketched hastily to catch the evening news or morning editions. This is the first survey of courtroom artists' work, which, with upcoming changes in the rules about photography in court, may not be with us for much longer. It contains more than 100 images from the world's key courtroom artists, depicting celebrities as diverse as Mohammed Al Fayed and Tom Cruise, and capturing some unforgettable moments: Winona Ryder's demure new courtroom image in 2002, Heather Mills McCartney throwing water over her estranged husband's lawyer in 2008, and Nigella Lawson confessing to cocaine use in 2013. Accompanied by exclusive insight from the artists, and descriptions of the court cases they illustrated, this book is a fascinating record of this unique art form.
