|Commentary||Don Quixote and the penitent's figures appears in opposing movements; the penintent with his back turned on the viewer (as a wide white spot that attracts the viewer's attention) and don Quixote looking towards the foreground (see his eyes and mad expression).
Print of quality.
|Notes||1 - Excellent and highly-detailed copy after Gilbert's illustration (London: Charles Daly, 1842 and London: Bohn, 1842).
2 - In London: Charles Daly, 1842, previous to this illustration, it also appeared Don Quixote and the wineskins; now, it is not represented (it did not appear in London: Bohn, 1842 either).
