    A framed chromolithograph picturing Mr Justice William Ventris Field, Baron Field of Wakenham. Queen's Council, later Queen's Bench, he oversaw the reorganisation of the court system following the Judicature Act of 1881 which established Judges Chambers in England and served (especially in the court of Chancery) to make trial without a jury the normal mode of trial, except in certain instances. In 1890, he retired from the bench and was raised to the peerage as Baron Field, of Wakenham in the County of Surrey, on 10 April 1890. He had been sworn of the Privy Council earlier the same year.

    2nd Commissioner

    A framed chromolithograph by SPY (Sir Leslie Ward) picturing The Hon. Sir John Charles Frederick Sigismund Day a High Court Judge and art collector. One of the first Roman Catholic judges to be appointed to the English bench since the Reformation, he was called to the bench in 1882. Well known for sentencing criminals to lashes, in his latter years, he would sometimes listen intently to cases with his eyes closed,  opening an eye suddenly if something significant were said, a mannerism which was jokingly referred to as "the peep of Day". He sat on the Parnell Commission, a judicial inquiry into allegations of crimes by Irish parliamentarian Charles Stewart Parnell which resulted in his acquittal and vindication. At the time it was said that it was on his insistence that Richard Pigott was put into the witness box and his forged letters, implicating Parnell in the Pheonix Park murders of 1882 exposed as fraudulent. He retired from the High Court of Justice in 1901, when he was granted an annuity of £3,500. In March the following year he was appointed to the Privy council. His portrait hangs in the Royal Courts of Justice.

    Portraits Part II by Constantin Guys, Verve Vol 2 / No. 5-6.

    The Verve Review was a purposefully luxurious. It ran from 1937 to 1960, but with only 38 editions available, due to the high degree of design and editorial work dedicated to each issue. Each edition contained unique lithographic prints, commissioned by the editor, and each cover a double-page lithograph elaborated by one of the artists contained within. It was the brainchild of its editor Stratis Eleftheriades, a Greek National who moved to Paris in the early thirties to take part in the growing Modernist movement, writing under the name of Teriade.
