The scene depicts the death of the legendary King Arthur. Laid out across the foreground is the wounded body of the King encircled by four grieving women within a glade; he wears a suit of chainmail under a tunic, bearing the emblem of a dragon on the chest, with a blanket of fur covering his legs. His head rests on the lap of his Queen, seated on a cushion placed on the ground to the left of the composition, who strokes his brow and gazes down into his face.
