|Commentary||Don Quixote tries to fit the basin on his head, while Sancho saddles his donkey up with the conquered packsaddle.
In the background, the defeated barber runs away.
Accurate details: fulling mills and rain.
Drawing and engraving are quite good, but with light disproportions among figures.
