Commentary In the foreground, don Quixote ready to fight against a lion, but the animal remains into its cage although the lionkeeper has opened it.
In the background, Sancho, don Diego and the carter running away.
Well-known scene and composition; illustration with little novelty.
Drawing and engraving are excellent; don Quixote's detailed figure is quite remarkable.
