Summary

Painting depicting a view of narrow streets, seen through an arched gateway in Siena.

The individuals in the painting appear small in comparison to the grand scale of the architecture. The brick work is in light brown, through the arch there is a bell tower visible as well as other buildings. People can be seen through the arch, descending the slope.
