Commentary Countess Trifaldi takes off her veil and shows her beard, astonishing don Quixote and Sancho.
Also the Duke, Duchess, other dueñas, maidens and white bearded Trifaldín.
The figure of the Duchess, of great beauty and highly-detailed (see her dress), is remarkable.
Print of great quality because of its drawing and engraving, but scene of little novelty.
Well-known scene since Coypel (Paris: Surugue, 1724). 
Notes 1 - Extra-illustration taken from set by Smirke for London: Cadell & Davies, 1818 and included in this unique copy (not in the edition).
