Neil Roland - Gallery 50
Royal Courts of Justice, London

This has been my biggest individual commission to date.
A collection of some 50 very large (up to six foot wide) artworks to hang in the Rolls Building at the Royal Courts of Justice in the City of London. I was presented to H.M. The Queen when she opened the building and looked at the artwork at the end of 2011.

The pictures, just a few of which are included here, are all taken from within the Square Mile of the City of London, and reflect the activities of the new courts - the biggest commercial courts in Europe.

I have an extensive London collection viewable at my Didsbury studio.
