This painting gives a picture of a young fruit seller making a sale. The boy holds a basket, overflowing with grapes and what appear to be pears, as the girl carefully counts out her money to the young seller. A light from the left of the figures shines down upon them, bathing the girl in sunlight, and her companion in soft shadows. Although it is a realistic rendition of an everyday image, Murillo depicts in such a way as to romanticize the simple act of buying fresh fruit on the street.
