Cross Examination

Vanity Fair style portrait of a barrister during cross examination. The client thought ‘Cross Examination’ should be the title. He said, of the picture, “It does capture a sneering disdain for a dishonest answer… or I’m just angry… works either way”.

These are gentle caricatures, nothing too extreme. As Leslie Ward (Spy) said:

If I could sum up the art in a sentence, it would be that caricature should be a comic impression with a kindly touch, and always devoid of vulgarity.Leslie Ward – Wikipedia
