More about this artwork
In this scene that was later rejected, Marie de’ Medici’s banishment by her son Louis XIII is shown as the result of a false accusation, symbolised by Calumnia and her torch. Two harpies embody lying and falsehood. Marie is, however, accompanied by Innocentia who, as the personi­fication of innocence, carries a lamb.
