Don Quixote and the Windmills Don Quixote and the Windmills

Details:

Turning to the classic 1605 Spanish tale Don Quixote, Dali created the engraving Don Quixote and the Windmills based on the colorful delusions of the story’s protagonist. Here, the chivalrous knight Don Quixote approaches the horizon with his trusty sidekick, Sancho Panzo. Don Quixote has imagined giant monsters looming in the distance, so he excitedly pronounces, “Fortune is guiding our affairs better than we ourselves could have wished. Do you see over yonder, friend Sancho, thirty or forty hulking giants? With their spoils we shall begin to be rich for this is a righteous war…” Ignoring the protests from poor Sancho, who complained that they are merely windmills, Don Quixote’s hallucinations continue.
