The Sleeping Girl was completed in 1930, which was at the height of Lempicka’s fame as a painter, and, at the same time, she was widely celebrated as a glamorous hostess and party-goer. The professional and social aspects of her life were inextricably intertwined; one was indispensable to the success of the other, and together enabled her to attain her own independent life-style, which was still a relatively rare achievement for a woman at that time.

Women who were entering the arts following the First World War attracted a good deal of attention, and Lempicka proudly believed that she stood out among them. Few would disagree. She later wrote, "Among a hundred paintings, you could recognize mine. And the galleries began to put me in the best rooms, always in the centre, because my painting attracted people. It was neat, it was finished"

Lempicka’s intention to express sensuality is clearly seen in most of her work, this painting depicts a young woman motionless and silent as she sleeps with her perfect blonde curls and voluptuous red lips.
