Florence Hooton (1912–1988) is shown full-length wearing a white silk or satin dress, with her left hand on the fingerboard of her cello and her bow resting on the strings. The setting is a panelled room, and behind her is a decorative painted panel of pale grey with flowers. The sitter was a student and professor (from 1964) of the Academy, becoming a leading chamber musician and teacher of many fine British cellists.
