About this work
Foreground, men and women in various activities. The sun is near the horizon. "The palace front at the left has been adapted from a gateway built in about 1570 and leading to the Farnese Gardens from the Forum in Rome. Behind it is the antique Arch of Titus. On the nearer building, a clock with a single hand gives the time as five o'clock." (National Gallery online catalogue)
