Image description

This unfinished work is one of several paintings Daumier created based on the story of the idealistic knight Don Quixote, written by the 17th-century Spanish novelist Miguel de Cervantes. The scene preserves the humour and tragic nobility of the original story, in which Don Quixote’s blind idealism is contrasted with the common sense of his servant, Sancho Panza. A renowned caricaturist, Daumier used the horse and the donkey to express these differing personalities.
