|Commentary||Print of great quality; don Quixote, with a severe face and a ridiculous figure, appears dancing in don Antonio Moreno's house with two young ladies. Their movements have been well-resolved with the lines of the clothes.
In the background, don Antonio, his wife and friends.
Don Quixote's figure is quite remarkable and interesting.
The setting, with some details to suggest the inside of a rich house, is good.
