The subject is taken from Walter Scott’s Ivanhoe, chapter XXXI. At the siege of the castle of Torquilstone the beautiful Rebecca, daughter of Isaac the Jew, is abducted by the Norman Templar, Sir Brian de Bois-Guilbert. Ulrica, an old Saxon woman who had set fire to the castle, exalts in her vengeful fury at the top of the distant tower. The picture was a popular success at the Paris Salon of 1831.
