Shipping at Leghorn
A romantic evocation of a Mediterranean port scene, alluding to Leghorn (Livorno), Italy, principal port of the Dukedom of Tuscany at the time it was painted. Two large ships are moored at the quayside, that to the left being a Tuscan man-of-war, with figures working high in the rigging. The idealized composition pays compliment to Tuscany as a maritime power and to Livorno as an international crossroads between the Muslim and Eastern world (symbolized by the camel and non-European figures) and Europe (symbolized by the white horse and its aristocratic female rider).
