The Full Picture: Oxford in Portraits is held at the Weston Library and features more than 20 paintings, drawings and photographs commissioned earlier this year as part of the University’s Diversifying Portraiture project.
The initiative aims to broaden the range of people represented around the University and features living Oxonians including BBC journalist Reeta Chakrabarti, eminent astrophysicist Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell, human rights activist Kumi Naidoo, film and television director Ken Loach, and broadcaster and charity campaigner Dame Esther Rantzen.
Professor Trish Greenhalgh, Professor of Primary Care Health Sciences, was one of 20 people selected for the initiative. All the paintings were featured in an exhibition at the Bodleian Library this week before being hung permanently in the Examination Schools. Women, Minority Ethnic Groups, people with disabilities and those from LGBT+ groups were included. The collection was funded by the Equality and Diversity Unit. The picture shows Professor Greenhalgh with the young Indonesian artist, Fakhri Bohang, who painted her portrait.
