A sailor is shown returning home to his family standing outside a cottage. He is embracing his wife while a boy hugs his father's right arm. A smaller boy on the far left holds his stick and his father's right hand, and carries his bundle. On the right a young girl holds a small child in her arms. In the background the domesticity of the setting is implied by the jug resting on the window-sill of the cottage on the right.
