Commentary Very original symbolical representation of the confrontation between Camacho and Basilio.
A young couple observes a balance; in one of the balance plates, the devil is puting bags of money (love by wealth, Camacho); in the other balance plate, it only appears a little Cupid, heavier than the bags of money (true and poor love, Basilio).
Excellent drawing and engraving; very imaginative, original and remarkable illustration.
