The husband of the judge in this Vanity Fair style portrait commissioned a Leslie Ward inspired Spy portrait, to celebrate her new post as a Judge. He chose the caption ‘Without Fear or Favour, Affection or Ill-will’ as this is the phrase spoken at then end of the oath taken at the swearing in ceremony of a new judge.
Without Fear or Favour, Affection or Ill-will – a Vanity Fair style portrait
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
