The male is an elf named Aegnor and the woman is a human named Andreth. They are from J.R.R. Tolkien's The Silmarillion. If you are familiar with The Lord of the Rings, Aegnor is the older brother of Galadriel. (And actually, I don't think Andreth is mentioned in the published Silmarillion, but she appears in Tolkien's writings).

No it wasn't. Unfortunately there aren't more things to know about Aegnor and Andreth. It's sad this story is sad but beautiful and it had potential to be expanded.

Kittens are cute... but a puppy would have been better. (jk)

Aww, there's something very sweet about this. Aegnor & Andreth are one of my favourite Sil (okay, technically not Sil, but hey) couples, and you managed to capture them wonderfully! :)

Beautiful drawing. I can't help but notice how she is leaning towards him, everything in her posture indicating her affection. Even her hand, delicately touching the kitten, is touching his hands at the same time. Maybe it was deliberate, or again an unconscious gesture of attraction...

Beautiful picture!

But where is this story? I have seen so many pictures of those two but I still haven't been able to find out where this all takes place....

The story of Aegnor and Andreth is mentioned fragmentarily in the Tolkien's draft texts. Namely, you should draw attention to the HoME-10, "Athrabeth Finrod ah Andreth" with comments.
Tolkien did not give much details, so the story was largely used in fan fiction too.

Sorry, my answer was not fast :(
