This drawing is one of almost 400 that Gustave Doré created to illustrate Don Quixote.
This image is one of a large group of illustrations that French artist Gustave Doré made for an 1863 edition of Miguel de Cervantes’s novel Don Quixote, originally published in 1605. It depicts Sancho Panza, the humorous sidekick of the novel’s hero. Placed at the end of a chapter in the book, this vignette emphasizes Sancho’s stocky form and curiosity, as he looks forward attentively.
