|Commentary||Don Quixote attacking the puppets of Maese Pedro's theater; Sancho tries to stop him and Maese Pedro appears from behind the set (he should wear a patch); in the foreground, the boy, Maese Pedro's servant, who was telling the story.
Other figures observe the scene with astonishment and laughing.
Scene resolved without too much originality, with good drawing and unequal engraving.
