Russell painted Escape to illustrate a story he wrote for Outing Magazine titled: "A Pair of Outlaws." When the magazine hit financial trouble, Russell's stories were discontinued. Finally in 1926, the story was resurrected for Russell's book, Trails Plowed Under. Russell apparently decided to create a new illustration for the book, and Escape was never published.
