|Commentary||During a meal with the Duke, the Duchess, don Quixote and Sancho, an ecclesiastic gets angry with the Duke and the Duchess because they are humouring don Quixote.
Scene resolved with austerity (furniture, clothes, table... without French baroquism); background architecture is austere too, so the characters are highlighted.
As an habitual anecdotal detail in Hayman, there is a dog.
|Notes||1 - This episode was also represented by Vanderbank in London: Tonson, 1738, but in a previous moment.|
