Lavery's painting HIGH TREASON.
This huge canvas (10' x 7') hangs at Kings Inns, Dublin. By Sir John Lavery it depicts Roger Casement appeal of his death sentence for High Treason at London's Royal Courts of Justice.
Bequeathed to the English by Lavery, the painting was a embarrassment to the Legal authorities and they were glad to pass in off as a permanent loan to Kings Inns, Dublin.
By coincidence, a book "The Trial of Roger Casement" was published in mid 2012.
