This painting is a full-length portrait of Lady Barber wearing academic robes and holding a book. Lady Barber was a member of the Barber family who were amongst the earliest contributors to the University and established Professorships for themselves in areas such as Fine Art, Law and Music. It was in 1932 however that Lady Barber herself set up the Barber Institute of Fine Art as an on-site gallery for both students and public visitors.
