Commentary From the whole episode, it has been chosen a tender moment; don Quixote, shocked by Sancho's moans (pretended), stops him whipping himself.
Drawing and engraving are excellent; Sancho's half-naked figure is exceptional.
Illustration of great quality.
Light and shadow effects are very remarkable.
