Erasmus De Bie primarily painted street scenes. He was a student of David Ryckaert (Antwerp 1612-1661). On the Meir, a play is performed, a comedia dell’arte. On the Meir, people from various social positions move about. In the background we recognise the tower of the Cathedral. The tower on the left is the urchin tower of the house of De Thoren.
