The view shows the edifice of the city hall on the Main Square in Kraków, according to its state before its demolition in 1820. In the foreground, you can see the Renaissance part of the complex with the characteristic attic; on the left, the upper parts of the city hall tower. On the left side of the painting, shoemaker's stalls are visible; in the background, houses at the opening of Bracka street to the main square. On the right, partially visible tenement houses of the western frontage of the main square come into view. At the bottom left, there is a signature: “TS”.
Teodor Baltazar Stachowicz, when painting this image, probably used the earlier drawings of his father, Michał Stachowicz.
The painting documents the state of objects that can no longer be seen in the main square. The impressive town hall complex was thoughtlessly demolished in 1820. Only the tower and the extensive cellars below it remained.
