|Commentary||Don Quixote mounted on Rocinante and lifting his sword completely ready to land it on the Basque, who is protecting himself with a cushion.
In the background, the carriage with the Basque ladies.
Drawing and etching are masterly; the figures of don Quixote and the Basque are highly worth-noting, their expressions, details, gestures...; the expression of the scared Basque is excellent.
|Notes||1 - Plate dated in 1843; the year is divided by a corkscrew.|
