|Commentary||Allegorical representation of Don Quixote's first sally.
Don Quixote, mounted on Rocinante, leaves his house accompanied by Love (Cupid), who touches his heart with a torch, and Folly, who holds a jester scepter, wears a barber basin with feathers (symbol of madness) and points to a windmill half-transformed into a giant (8:1), a flock of sheep (18:1) and Dulcinea carrying wheat (31:1).
Poor engraving, but acceptable.
|Notes||1 - Same plate first engraved for La Haye: Chez Bassompierre Pére, 1773.|
