Commentary Coypel chose a great number of episodes about don Quixote and the Dukes because these scenes allowed him to design theatrical, court and baroque compositions.
This is one of those great and theatrical illustrations (with rich clothes, many figures, detailed baroque arquitectures, French gardens, curtains...), but the result is not too much accurate to Cervantes' text.
Don Quixote was undressed by the Duchess' maidens, but he dressed himself alone, just with Sancho.
The maiden who looks at the viewer and points to the scene is remarkable.
Carefully-drawn and engraved gestures (hands); these gestures establish relations among characters. 
Notes 1 - Same plate first engraved for London: Knaplock, 1725; turned copy after Coypel’s illustration engraved by Surugue (Paris: Surugue, 1724).
2 - In 1731 edition, volume III is in tome II; in 1725, there were four tomes.
