The detail of the “Capture of the city and citadel of Gand in six days” belongs in the “Salon” dedicated to war, which is symmetrically opposite another salon at the other end of the Hall of Mirrors dedicated to peace. These two rooms ensured the transition to the royal apartments and completed the “vault iconography”.
