Title Caption Auf einem Balle bei Don Antonio in Barcellona hatten sich einige junge, zwar muthwillige aber doch Tugendhafte Frauenzimmer verabredet, unsern Ritter nieder zu Tanzen, undnun zogen sie ihn immer wechselsweise so unablässig auf, das der arme ganz geräderte und zerschlagene Mann keine andere Rettung mehr sah, als sich mitten in den Tanz saal auf die Erde hin zu setzen.

Commentary In the center of a large room, the main group of characters: don Quixote, sat on the floor ("se sentó en mitad de la sala en el suelo, molido", 62:2) and pushing away two ladies who try to help him ("Fugite partes adversae"; 62:2).
Also Sancho, trying to help his master, don Antonio Moreno and two servants. This group is surrounded by several persons present at the ball, some of them disguised, and musicians.
Superb setting; detailed representation of a 18th century French court ball.
