This work was illustrated in a 1945 issue of Life Magazine, in a brief profile discussing Sylvia Sidney and Fletcher Martin's painting. "Artist Fletcher Martin took three weeks to paint the portrait at right, picked the sultry midnight blue gown because he thought it helped to set off the character of restrained tempestuousness he was trying to catch."
