|Commentary||Scene resolved with a basic composition.
Don Quixote and Sancho kneel down before three peasant girls mounted on donkeys. Sancho introduces one of them as the enchanted Dulcinea and don Quixote tries to kiss her foot.
The three peasant girls are represented as French maidens.
Good drawing and engraving, but bad printing.
