In its plain composition, the scene depicts a moment in the day of fishermen’s life with a realistic approach with the relentless power of the Mediterranean light providing it with emotional meaning. As a result, the figures are lit up with colours and their fatigued walking under the weight of the baskets is highlighted. The painting shows that he had been in Naples and learned the lesson of the master Domenico Morelli.
