A painter by the name of William Long exhibited several paintings of episodes in 'Anne of Geierstein' at the Royal Academy between 1833 and 1847, but these were larger paintings (about 20 x 30 inches including the frame). The present painting might be a preliminary sketch by Long for one of them. An attribution to George Cattermole has also been suggested: a painting by him of an episode in 'Anne of Geierstein' was offered for sale at Christie's South Kensington on 21 May 1998 (lot 34/2).
