    Half-length portrait of Dorothy Hodgkin, seated, with her face in profile. She wears a light blue blouse with a floral pattern, visible sleeve turned up at the cuff to reveal a black-strapped wristwatch. Her left arm is casually laid across her chair back, showing her hand and wedding ring. Her hair is white, parted and naturally worn, shown against a rich, dark green background.

    Dorothy Mary Crowfoot Hodgkin was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1947.
