According to Louisa Wood Ruby, this later painting includes Castel dell’Ovo, which seems to have been one of Jan Brueghel (I)'s preferred motifs, showing up in two of his drawings. His View of the Castel dell'Ovo with its companion in the same collection Harbor of Naples has historically been considered evidence of Jan Brueghel (I)'s activity in Naples. His earliest paintings, Christ in the Storm (Christ and Apostles on the Lake of Tiberius) (Milan) and this painting of the same subject in the collection Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid of 1596, as well as two magnificent later paintings in Munich, The Continence of Scipio of ca. 1603 and the Large Fish Market with Self Portrait of 1603."
Bedoni (p.149) notes a copy that was formerly in the Melzi collection in Milan, presumably this picture.
This is an autograph version of the painting in the Ambrosiana; Pijl in Ambrosiana 2006 says that the Thyssen copy is inferior.
The gound layer is applied with fingers (fingerprints visible) to achieve smoother surface.
