|Commentary||Well-known scene since Savery (Dordrecht: Savery, 1657).
Don Quixote begins his love penance (jumping in a very modest way; his shirt covers him perfectly) before Sancho leaves with Rocinante towards El Toboso to take don Quixote's letter to Dulcinea.
Don Quixote's arms hanged on a tree.
Drawing and engraving are little remarkable; notice how don Quixote's figure has been highlighted leaving the background unfinished.
