Queen Isabella the Catholic dictating her Will
Eduardo Rosales Gallinas depicts the moment when the Catholic Queen dictates her last will and testament at Medina del Campo on 12 October 1504, just days before she died. Isabel stands out in a royal chamber almost in darkness, in a canopy bed, with a medal of the Order of Saint James on her bosom. The white sheets contrast with the muted colors of the other personages. The only note of color is the red robe of a grieving King Fernando, whose daughter, Juana, is at his side. Cisneros, in his Cardinal´s clothing, is recognizable among the other figures.
