    Bill Lignante Patty Hearst Trial Courtroom Portrait Original Art (ABC-Television, 1976). Lignante scored as both a pictorial journalist and a comics-and-animation artist. One audience prizes his work on Lee Falk's The Phantom (comic-strip and comic-book versions) and with Hanna-Barbera. The crime-reportage enthusiasts champion Lignante's 26-year stretch as a courtroom artist for ABC Network News. (Cameras once were restricted in such settings.) That period yields this vivid scene from the trial of publishing heiress Patty Hearst, accused of bank robbery in connection with her abduction and enlistment by a radical-revolutionary cult. The tense, emotion-laden scene depicts Hearst, with lawyer F. Lee Baily (right) and his partner, Al Johnson, Jr. Graphite and Design Markers on watercolor stock. Image area, 17" x 14". Crimped corners and slightly ragged edges. Very Good condition.
