Commentary Don Quixote speaks to Maritornes as if she was a maiden and she flees away from him.
On the left, the muleteer.
This episode was first represented by Savery (Dordrecht: Savery, 1675), but in a very different way.
Savery was interested in the humorous fight between Sancho, Maritornes and the muleteer.
Olfield and Vanderbank chose a funny moment not because of the action, but of the dialogue.
Engraving and drawing are excellent. 
Notes 1 – Plate newly engraved in a reduced size by Van der Gucht after his own plate with Vanderbank’s design first engraved for London: Tonson, 1738.
