In this version of the scene from Cervantes' novel, dating about ten years later than the preceding lots, the landscape has become more Chinese, the barber and his horse have disappeared, and the basin on Quixote's head has become an odd black hat. Howard and Hervouet both speculate that these plates were based on the earlier Chinese export porcelain, rather than on one of the Coypel-inspired European engravings. See Howard and Ayers, op. cit., vol. I, pl. 344 and Hervouet and Bruneau, op. cit., pp. 194-5.
