The columns in the background of this painting are a frequently recurring motif in the painting of the Bamboccianti: they formed part of the portico to the Temple of Vespasian in the Forum at Rome. They are seen partly buried in this picture; they remained so until their excavation in 1813. 


A closely related drawing, signed and dated 1695, is in Berlin, SMPK, Kupferstichkabinett.1
