|Commentary||Image based on Bouttats' illustration (Amberes: Verdussen, 1672-73).
In the foreground, don Quixote aims his lance at the Knight of the Mirrors' face while his squire (Tomé Cecial disguised) takes off his false nose, surprising Sancho.
In the background, a second scene: Sancho and the Knight of the Mirrors' squire eating and talking during the previous night.
Good drawing and engraving in some details, as don Quixote's figure.
