Event Description

This talk investigates the role of visual display in the celebrated nineteenth-century trials in Britain of Arthur Orton, widely known as the 'Tichborne Claimant'. Familiar to historians as a cause that attracted popular working-class support and propelled the reformation of the Court of Chancery in 1875, the Tichborne trials (1871-1874) were also, Tucker argues, an important landmark in the history of photography, portraiture and modern visual culture.
