Priscilla Coleman has been drawing court scenes for over 20 years. The pictures collected here mark many of the most important trials of that period. There is a widespread misunderstanding among those who see pictures on TV or in the newspapers that an artist can sketch as much as they like in court. As lawyers know, far from taking a palate and easel into the public gallery, any attempt at photography, drawings or visual representations is strictly verboten. Artists have to memorise in court the colours, shades, clothing, facial mannerisms and physical idiocyncracies then go out and draw a likeness from memory . . . against the clock.

Author Biography

Priscilla Coleman was born in Chilton, Texas. Inspired by her mother Henrietta, a talented fashion illustrator and portrait painter, Priscilla is driven by a love of drawing people. She approached ITN with a video tape of her electronic news graphics and court drawings from her time with Channel 13 and KTRK TV in Houston where she was art director for news, and was hired straight away. Her first sketch was of Jeffrey Archer and Monica Coghlan in the notorious High Court libel trial. Paul Cheston is the courts correspondent of the London Evening Standard. He covered his first court case for the Diss Express and came to Fleet Street to work for the Press Association. He joined the short-lived London Daily News and was in court on the final day of the Jeffrey Archer libel trial when owner Robert Maxwell closed the paper down. He was appointed courts correspondent for The London Evening Standard in 1993 and is co-author of Brothers in Blood published in 1994.
