I have a book entitled "Ireland in Poetry" edited by Charles Sullivan that 
uses the above referenced painting as the front cover. According to the 
back flap, the painting is "Helellil and Hildebrand" or "The Meeting on the 
Turret Stairs" by Sir Frederick Burton, 1864; Watercolor on paper, from the 
National Gallery of Ireland in Dublin.
