[The knight, love, and death] by Gerald Moira. c. 1898. Source: The Studio. In lieu of a title, these lines from D. G. Rossetti appear beneath the painting in The Studio reproduction:

And with his feet and with his wing-feathers,
He swept the spring that watered my heart's drouth
The dark ripples spread the waving hair
And as I stooped, her own lips rising there
Bubbled with brimming kisses at my mouth.
