Biography  
Isaac Van Ostade


Isaac van Ostade (bapt. June 2, 1621, Haarlem - buried October 16, 1649, Haarlem) was a Dutch genre and landscape painter.

Van Ostade began his studies under his brother, Adriaen, with whom he remained till 1641, when he started his own practice. At an early period he felt the influence of Rembrandt, and this is apparent in a Slaughtered Pig of 1639, in the gallery of Augsburg.  He soon found a style more suited to his own inclinations.  He produced pictures in 1641-1642 on the lines of his brother - amongst these, The Five Senses, which Adrian afterwards represented by a Man Reading a Paper, a Peasant Tasting Beer, a Rustic Smearing his Sores with Ointment and a Countryman Sniffing at a Snuff-boxDisplaying 750 of 2586 characters.
