Jan Brueghel was the second son of the famous peasant painter, Pieter Brueghel the elder. The younger Brueghel was one of the pioneers of the river landscape in Netherlandish art. In this painting, he develops the related theme of river travel, as ferry boats full of passengers and animals approach a crowded landing near a small village.
