Isabel Clara Eugenia de Habsburgo in robes by Peter Paul Rubens (Kunsthistorisches Museum - Wien, Austria) the lost gallery

This portrait and the Rubens’ 1605 portrait of Brigida Spinola Doria show similar dresses and viewing angles. Brigida stands and looks lovely, but Isabel interacts with a subordinate who symbolically has a book, crown, and flowers (but no tulips). The subordinate appears to be a nun and Isabel may be holding a rosary although the larger beads and crucifix aren’t visible.
