Commentary In the foreground, don Quixote fallen on the ground and beaten by a pair of yangüeses.
Behind, Sancho is beaten by other yangüés.

This is one of the best illustrations of the whole edition.
Print of great beauty.
Don Quixote´s representation is different in comparison with other illustrations in the same edition; classical model; his figure reminds classical sculptures as Dying Gaul or Discobolo-warrior (Capitoline Museum, Rome).
