This monument to the Dutch Golden Age poet and playwright, Gerbrand Adriaensz Bredero stands, appropriately enough, just outside of Amsterdam's notorious Red Light District. Bredero's work often depicted the seedier side of Dutch society and he lived all his life in and around these streets; his former residence can be found on Oudezijds Voorburgwal. The statue is a tribute to Bredero's work, showing a couple embracing in a scene from "The Spanish Brabander" and was created by Dutch sculptor Piet Esser in 1968 to mark the 350th anniversary of Bredero's death.
