|Commentary||Don Quixote's first sally allegorical representation.
Don Quixote, mounted on Rocinante, protected by Folly (with the barber basin and a jester scepter) and Love (Cupid holding a torch touching don Quixote's heart and pointing to Dulcinea).
Dulcinea appears as a French Lady carrying wheat, as Sancho refers in chapter 31:1.
In the background, a windmill half-transformed into a giant (8:1) and a flock of sheep with lances (18:1).
Drawing and engraving poor.
