George Graham’s portrait was given to the Judiciary Committee as a gift in 1950, nearly 20 years after the Chairman’s death. Painted in 1917 by artist Richard Partington, it is typical of the period, depicting the dignified gentleman in three-quarter length, with pince-nez in one hand, the other hand casually in his pocket. The plain, dark background contrasts with the strong light illuminating the sitter’s face, emphasizing Graham’s world-weary expression.
