Courtroom Sketches From the Astor Trial
It's really a shame there haven't been cameras at the trial of Anthony Marshall, the son of Brooke Astor who now stands accused on plundering his mother's fortune. Hundred (thousands?) of Upper East Siders would have been glued to their TV sets the past few weeks. Sketch artist Jane Rosenberg has been in attendance the past few weeks to document the goings-on with paper and colored pencils. Can you identify the notable people above who've appeared on the witness stand? As always, answers below.
From left to right: TV anchor Barbara Walters; socialite Annette de la Renta, Betsy Gotbaum, New York City's public advocate; Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter; former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger; and former Met Museum chief Philippe de Montebello.
