Preparatory drawing for some of the figures in London, British Museum.
According to Louisa Ruby, Jan Brueghel "used a similar bridge and the motif of St. Peter’s from his drawing View of the City of Rome with the Tiber, Castel Sant'Angelo and St. Peters in numerous paintings, including Munich’s Large Fish Market with Self Portrait and the Aeneas Carrying Anchises from the Burning Troy (Munich)"
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 the same subject in the collection Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid of 1596, Christ and the Apostles in the Tempest on the Sea of Galilee (Madrid) as well as two magnificent later paintings in Munich, The Continence of Scipio of ca. 1603 and this one."
Wood Ruby also states that this painting reuses and enhances the same composition of Harbor with a Fish Market.
