Abstract:
Sancho sits beside his physician Pedro Rezzio who stays his hand that is posed with a fork full of meat. Two platters have already been placed on the table, and two more (one with a rabbit and the other with clams) are brought to the table by two young servant boys. On the right two ladies stand behind Sancho's chair, one pointing to him. On the left a larger group of men, one woman, and a black man laugh at the scene around the table. In the upper left on a balcony, three musicians play for the guests below. From the lower right, a dog looks at a platter of food. A reversed copy of the original engraving by Hogarth.
