This courtroom scene was commissioned by William Murray (later Lord Mansfield) for Lincoln's Inn Hall, and was finished and mounted in July, 1748. Sullivan's engraving has the same caption as Hogarth's, and is mainly distinguishable from that print by its not being the reverse of the painting, and by its fewer figures and classicizing.
