|Commentary||During Grisóstomo's burial, the shepherdess Marcela appears to defend herself; don Quixote, Sancho, Ambrosio, Vivaldo and other shepherds listen to her.
Hogarth has not placed Marcela at an upper position (as she appears in traditional compositions and accurate to Cervantes' text), but at the same level as the other characters.
Hogarth's drawing skill is masterful.
Vanderbank's illustration (London: Tonson, 1738) is more accurate to Cervantes' text.
