Scholarly Commentary


King René and Queen Isabella are seated frontally. The King wears a green robe and golden chains. The Queen wears a white dress with gold embroidery, purple cuffs and collar, a gold headpiece and veil. Architectural plans and a T-square lie before them on the floor. The King holds a compass and the Queen has a list on her lap. The Queen leans over and kisses the King on the cheek.
