In the foreground of the painting is a marketplace flooded with crowds of shoppers and sellers. They are buying and selling textiles, tableware, and many other things. People from different social strata and status meet here. In the middle plane, a two teams of horses collide, and townsfolk dodge chaos and push each other. A bridge leads across the river, which leads to the rich urban areas including the monastery. In the background, a slightly hilly landscape and sky with thick clouds are depicted. Signed: Schmidt
