A coastal scene with, in the foreground on the left, a group of men salvaging gear from a ship that has run aground on the rocks in a stormy sea. On the left is a man, obviously injured, lying back on a pile of bundles, his shirt torn open at the chest. Above him, a man unloads bundles of luggage from the cart. There are barrels and boxes strewn around on the rocks. Two men are standing in the cart; one holds his hat on against the wind, and looks at the wrecked ship, while the other pulls up a bundle passed to him from below. On the right, two men pull on a rope to retrieve a bundle in the waves. A stormy, cloudy sky lowers in the distance on the right, while a rocky cliffside occupies the left background of the picture.
