I want to have a gravatar on my ‘independent publishing’ theme
I see this gravatar image https://0.gravatar.com/avatar/b49deca3dc056ef7910f95f8373550d4?s=48&d=identicon&r=g
Where Will My Gravatar Appear? Next to approved comments you submit on gravatar enabled sites, and next to comments you reply to on your own site.
The point of displaying an author name is to differentiate the posts on a multi-author site. Many themes don’t display the author byline unless there is more than one official user on the site. See here https://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/#author
Regardless of the theme, and provided the theme is designed to display an author, bylines will only display now if there are at least two authors, who both have at least one published post in the blog. There’s a single author workaround here.
Very few themes have an author profile with a gravatar that displays below every post. The data is derived from here > Dashboard > Users > My Profile > About You (section) and anything you add there appears on your Gravatar profile page as well.
If the author profile does not appear on the live demo site for your theme then it is not a feature provided by that theme. https://independentpublisherdemo.wordpress.com/
