In 1929 a devenit Dame Commander al Ordinului Imperiului Britanic, iar in 1936 a devenit prima femeie aleasa in Royal Academy.
A fost artistul oficial de razboi la Procesul criminalilor nazisti de la Nürnberg.
A continuat sa picteze si-n anii 1960.A produs peste 250 lucrari, precum si doua autobiografii.
