The Flemish painter Pieter Casteels II, active in Antwerp during the last quarter of the 17th century, is best known for both his realistic views of Paris and for his fictitious, fantasized, crowded capriccio town views.

In our painting he has combined a view of Paris along the Quai Conti and its famous landmark the Tour de Nesle (opposite the Louvre Palace) with shipping along an Italianate coastline.
