The painting represents an important and significant addition to the catalog of the painter Pietro Maurizio Bolckman (Gorinchem, 1640 - Turin, 1710), of Dutch nationality, but active mainly in Italy during the second half of the 17th century, first to Rome, then to Genoa and finally, from 1679, to Turin.
The work, particularly rich in detail, depicts a fanciful coastal landscape, such as the scene of a bustling scene animated by rich buyers, merchants and fishermen, busy in their daily activities.
The style with which the characters and genre scenes are underlined perfectly expresses the style of the master.
The figures seem to be typical of the repertoire of the Dutch painter, where the influence of the Bamboccianti school learned during his stay in Rome is evident;
The details of the work, the characters in the first place, can be compared to those who populate one of the most famous paintings of Bolckman, illustrating the extension of the shroud of Piazza Castello, now located in the castle of Racconigi, 'Opera' Scene of popular life overlooking Piazza Castello 'from Palazzo Madama to Turin.
