The Courtroom Sketch Favorite 


Feb 1 2021


Los Angeles CA

Courtoom sketches were, for many cases, the only glimpses into high profile trails that captivated the nation. Now, over 200 of these sketches by artists will be in the Library of Congress, ranging from cases such as The Rodney King trial, the Watergate scandal, and the Allen v. Farrow custody battle. While the Nation's Library will be collecting these sketches for their historic value, many seek to buy the "art" as an investment. Art collectors say that the infamy of the trial or the persons involved and detailed in the sketch, along with which sketch artists cover it, can drive up its market value and popularity for acquirement. Another reason these sketches draw buyers' interest is due to the fact that they are once in a lifetime pieces that literally encapsulate real life events.
