Commentary Excellent representation of don Quixote (notice his gesture, lightly theatrical), surrounded by Sancho and the goatherds, making his speech about the Golden Age.
The scene, represented with a very carefully-done shading, results bucholic, quite and intimate.
Drawing and engraving are very remarkable.
