She's only posted one tweet since January, and three Instagram pics since March. She hasn't released an album since 2014, and her last single was New Romantics in February last year.

Aside from rumours she left her apartment hidden inside a giant suitcase, Taylor Swift has kept an incredibly low profile in recent months.

It's in stark contrast to the whirlwind publicity tour she went on during her three-month relationship with Tom Hiddleston, in which barely a day passed without new photos being taken of the pop queen.

But the world has finally seen Swift, thanks to a court case in Denver.

It's a moment that hasn't been photographed - but it has been sketched.

The sketch shows Swift sitting alongside her lawyer and mother in court, where she is facing off against former Denver radio host David Mueller.

Mueller is alleged to have touched Swift's backside during a concert meet-and-greet in 2013.

The case went to court after Mueller sued Swift, claiming her false accusation cost him his job at a country music station. He is seeking at least US$3 million ($4.1m) in damages. Swift countersued, claiming sexual assault.

In America, many courtrooms do not allow cameras, so sketch artists illustrate proceedings.

That's why we have this amazing sketch of Taylor Swift. Let's hope there are many more to come.
