The location of the ship in harbour is possibly Oneglia at Imperia, Liguria. The sailing vessel is very impressively depicted with the sails at the ready for departure. The figures on the harbour give an idea of scale. The reflections in the water tend to indicate a choppy sea migrating into the harbour. The background buildings on the quayside are painted with suggestions of detail. A really colourful and freely painted picture.
