|Commentary||Allegorical scene of great beauty.
In a room, don Quixote, asleep, is protected by Wisdom (as Athena among shining clouds); his arms and barber basin remain abandoned.
On the right, Sancho, awake, is captivated by Folly (with a jester scepter among dark clouds), who shows him a crown and a castle (the promised government of the island).
|Notes||1 - Turned copy after Coypel’s illustration (Paris: Surugue, c. 1728-30).
