The painting of the sitter was exhibited at the Royal Academy and Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers in 1930. Salaman praised "Una" saying the "ripe-lipped face, 'full of the warm South,' [who] looks at you with eyes that seem to meet your own with humorous frankness, yet leave you wondering as to what subtle audacity may be behind them."
