|Commentary||In the center, Sancho, framed by two columns and one large curtain, with the secretary and the majordomo.
At each side, one group of characters (one with the accused man and other with the accusing one).
Great and theatrical setting; perfectly-balanced composition.
The stolen coins have just been discovered into a walking stick; Sancho looks at the accused man (right) out of the corner of his eye.
Poor engraving, but acceptable.
|Notes||1 - Same plate first engraved for La Haye: Chez Bassompierre Pére, 1773.|
