The interior of a barn with a high thatched roof and stable door in the background. Two peasants are visible in the foreground, fighting with knives; one of the figures stands on a stool, holding the other by his hair as he stumbles. A woman to the right drags him in an attempt to pull him away. To the right stand a scattered bench, table and barrels, and to the left there is another fallen table. The upper section of the stable door is held open by two men watching the fight.
