This work is one of the first in which Koen van den Broek clearly chooses a strong figurative element. We can just about make out a human figure walking off. Only the shadow betrays the nature of the encounter. Again, the artist incorporates a stylized representation of the crowned Agnes Sorel figure, the eternal mistress. It can be interpreted as a snapshot from Handel's baroque opera Agrippina, which revolves around a tangle of royal intrigue.
