Commentary Well-known scene; Pedro Recio does not allow Sancho to eat and, pointing the dishes with his wand, orders the servants to take them away; several ladies and gentlemen observe them.
Highly-detailed drawing and engraving; figures of great beauty (ladies on the left) and realism (servants on the right); good pictorial effects too.
Vanderbank represented this scene with quite more austerity (London: Tonson, 1738). 
Notes 1 - Same plate first engraved for Hogarth Illustrated (London: J. & J. Boydel, 1798, vol. 3).
2 - It is not one of the 6 illustrations designed or engraved by Hogarth for London: Tonson, 1738; perhaps designed and engraved for the first time c1724 or in 1730.
