|Commentary||Well-known scene since Coypel (Paris: Surugue, 1724).
Sancho Panza introduces Princess Micomicona (Dorotea) to don Quixote; she kneels before don Quixote and he tries to prevent her from doing it.
The barber appears disguised with a beard as her squire.
Don Quixote's arms still hanging on a tree (don Quixote's penance).
In the background, hidden, the priest and Cardenio.
The quality of drawing and engraving is unequal, but quite acceptable as a whole.
