Commentary The innkeeper's wife and daughter curing don Quixote's wounds; also Maritornes, holding a candle, and Sancho.
Notice Hogarth's scathing and satirical style in some figures: the innkeeper's wife, Maritornes or Sancho.
Maritornes' figure is especially remarkable; very grotesque.
The light and shadow contrasts are very strong; they suggest a very gloomy atmosphere (as a scene of witches); quite remarkable too.
The quality of drawing and engraving is excellent. 
Notes 1 - Same plate first engraved for Hogarth Illustrated (London: J. & J. Boydel, 1798, vol. 3).
2 - Re-engraved copy after Hogarth's illustration for London: Tonson, 1738; this is one of the 6 illustrations rejected by Carteret and Oldfield.
