Commentary Well-known scene since Coypel (Paris: Surugue, c. 1728-31).
Duchess' maidens burst into don Quixote's room, frightening don Quixote and doña Rodríguez; "con un gran golpe abrieron las puertas del aposento, y del sobresalto del golpe se le cayó a doña Rodríguez la vela de la mano" (48:2).
Rich setting (canopy, furniture, cage with bird, ceiling carvings...).
Detailed engraving.
The cat refers to a previous adventure.
