Commentary In the foreground, don Quixote doing some somersaults before Sancho leaves for El Toboso.
Well-known comical scene since Savery (Dordrecht: Savery, 1657).
Don Quixote's figure, extremely elongated, is ridiculous but remarkable.
Drawing and engraving are quite good; notice shading in don Quixote's shirt. 
Notes 1 - Same plate first engraved for Paris: Chez Marlin, 1830.
