Half-length portrait of Sir Andrew Huxley, posed in the President’s Office at the Royal Society’s headquarters at 6–9 Carlton House Terrace. Behind is a bookcase against which leans a framed print. The print is after the 1883 portrait by John Collier (in the National Portrait Gallery) of Thomas Henry Huxley, the celebrated Victorian scientist and Sir Andrew's grandfather. John Collier was Thomas Henry Huxley's son-in-law twice over.
