"Then, I say," said Don Quixote, "the author of my history was no sage, but some ignorant chatterer, who, in a haphazard and heedless way, set about writing it, let it turn out as it might, just as Orbaneja
, the painter of Ubeda, used to do, who, when they asked him what he was painting, answered, 'What it may turn out.' Sometimes he would paint a cock in such a fashion, and so unlike, that he had to write alongside of it in Gothic letters, 'This is a cock; and so it will be with my history, which will require a commentary to make it intelligible."
Puntualmente, se ha senalado que la historia del mal pintor es un cuentecillo popular y folclorico inmortalizado por Cervantes en el Quijote II, 3 y 71, donde se menciona la anecdota de Orbaneja
para criticar a Avellaneda y a todos aquellos que escriben, igual que este, a "lo que saliere."

, the called accusatory procedural pretension (a request declaration that exists an impositive right of accusation and that it is correct the applying of the punitive power of the State) as an object of the criminal procedure.
Conta a fabula do pintor Orbaneja
, que dizia pintar "o que saisse", e precisava esclarecer o que pintava: "Escrevia embaixo: 'Isso e um galo', para que nao pensassem que era raposa".
Don Quixote brings up the example of the (fictitious) painter Orbaneja
, saying: "Tal vez pintaba un gallo, de tal suerte y tan mal parecido, que era menester que con letras goticas escribiese junto a el: 'Este es gallo.' Y asi debe de ser de mi historia, que tendra necesidad de comento para entenderla." ["Perhaps he would paint a rooster, in such a fashion and so unlike one, that he would need to write next to it in Gothic letters: 'This is rooster.' And so it must be with my story, which will require a commentary in order to understand it"] (2.3:57; my translation).
