Summary: 

Sketch on recto shows Don Quixote, with his lance and shield, standing on the back of Rosinante beside the outside wall of the inn, and reaching up with one arm to a small, highly placed window; sketch on verso is a variant of the design on verso, showing Don Quixote similarly placed, but looking down from Rosinante's back, striking a theatrical stance, with one arm and one leg raised.
