"Coypel: Illustrating Don Quixote," Patrick Lenaghan, The Hispanic Society of America, New York

Charles Coypel’s paintings of Cervantes’s Don Quixote mark one of the artist’s triumphs. Examining these works and later illustrations of the novel raises unexpected questions about art and how readers understood the book and looked at these pictures, which not only attest to Coypel’s talent but also evoke the culture of the time.
