Cervantes's 'Don Quixote' fictional masterpieces inspired many paintings, prints and interiors, most notably those of Charles Coypel (1694−1752). The painter to Louis XV created a series of 28 paintings to be woven into tapestries by the Gobelins manufactory in Paris. 27 were painted between 1714 and 1734, and the final completed before his death in 1751.

The Frick Collection will bring together a complete series of Coypel's scenes for a rare exhibition in summer. 5 of Coypel's original paintings on loan from the Palais Impérial de Compiègne and the Musée Jacquemart-André in Paris have never been seen in New York. The series is accompanied by 18 prints and books from the Hispanic Society of America in New York.
