|Commentary||Don Quixote attacks a barber who, to run away, jumps down from his mule; in the background, Sancho appears gesticulating.
The illustration has been drawn and engraved with excellent quality; notice don Quixote's face, the barber's expression or the movement of Rocinante.
John Vanderbank (London: Tonson, 1738) represented a latter moment of this episode.
|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.
