A coastal scene with figures. In the right foreground of the picture sit a man, a woman, and two children. The man wears a sou'wester hat, and sits on a coil of rope, leaning against a basket of fish. He is carving a boat from a piece of wood. The young blonde child leans on his leg, watching him intently. The woman, in a red-black headscarf, stops her net mending, and leans over to watch the man. On her lap is an infant.
