Don Quixote telling stories of chivalry

In this scene from Don Quixote, Lucas presents Don Quixote surrounded by an audience, in which we only recognise Sancho, who is absorbed in listening to his stories of chivalry during a stop on the road. We have found no record of the author illustrating Cervantes’ novel in any editorial project, so this is probably a free-standing drawing.
