Commentary Don Quixote's first sally; the knight, mounted upon Rocinante, leaves his house; canonical image.
The austere setting tries to be accurate to La Mancha architecture.
The wood engraving imitates watercolor effects (notice the different kind of shading at both sides), but the print results too much dark.
