More about this artwork
Rubens hints at the humiliating aspect of the flight into exile through the discrete inclusion of the ladder on the right. The queen, acknowledging the homage being paid by her entourage, stands at the centre. She appears as the victim here as well, who—despite her defamation—is acting for the good of the state.
