Doña Juana secluded in the palatial part of the Santa Clara convent in Tordesillas. On the left side of the composition, the queen appears seated by a large window,with her daughter Catherine.
In the background, a door reveals the coffin of Felipe el Hermoso in a dark room. In front of the great hearth-fireplace, two seated women accompany the sovereign.
The atmosphere of desolation and sadness is evident in this representation. The work is highly theatrical, a quality characteristic of the historical genre and the aesthetics of the time.
