Commentary A scene of great drama.
Camila pretends to stab herself and Lotario and Leonela try to stop her; Anselmo, her husband, is hidden behind a tapestry (he should remain behind the tapestry during the whole scene).
Theatrical and dramatic scene; well-resolved movement and commotion.
Drawing and engraving are excellent.
