Commentary Copy from the composition for this episode created by Bouttats (Amberes: Verdussen, 1672 - 1673).
Tho different scenes in the same plate.
In the foreground, don Quixote and Sancho, who falls from his donkey, are attacked by the braying mayors squadron.
Lances are multiplied to suggest agitation and a more numerous group.
In the background, don Quixote and Sancho keep away.
Taking into consideration the number of figures, different positions and gestures, the engraving is of acceptable quality.
