Name of the artpiece showing a maiden and knight lingering in a stairwell?

I am looking for the name of a piece of artwork (Pre-Raphealite?) showing a scene in a stairwell of a maiden and a knight.

The knight and maiden are passing by one another, trying to linger in the stairwell but also clearly not able to. It captures their emotion beautifully. It's very much in the vein of Sir Frank Dicksee, Edmund Blair Leighton, John William Waterhouse. I remember finding this picture online before (on the poster/art websites) but for some reason, I can't find it now...Any help would be appreciated!

Yeah I, uh, had a little pre-raphaelite phase. We were all young once.
