The gravatar url can be calculated from the email hash.

string gravatarUrl = "http://www.gravatar.com/avatar/" + emailHash + "?d=identicon&r=PG";

More gravatar info.

Or, include the size to get a larger icon: ?s=128&d=identicon&r=PG –  Arjan May 22 '10 at 21:57
    
r=PG ? or r=G ? –  vishnu Nov 1 '10 at 15:54
    
That's up to you. ;) –  Joel Potter Jan 21 '11 at 21:19

As part of the response you get the email hash, which you can use to construct the proper request to Gravatar:

  "email_hash": {
    "description": "email hash, suitable for fetching a gravatar",
    "values": "string"
  },
