“SAN JOSE, Calif. – (KRT) – They’re not exactly in a league with Old Masters, but the drawings of courtroom sketch artists have become collectible in their own right.
Their appeal is two-fold, both as art and as pieces of history.
So far, the trade has been limited mostly to courtroom habitues – attorneys, judges and the like – but there are stirrings that, in this collectibles-crazed culture, the market may increase. Smart Money magazine has written about courtroom art as an investment and, as with all art, the prices of work by the best practitioners seem to be rising.”
