(1621 - 1649)
van Ostade was the short-lived younger brother of Adriaen
. He, as his elder brother, was born, lived and worked
in Haarlem. Isaack was a pupil of his brother who was eleven years his
senior. Isaack joined the Lucas Guild in 1643. His earliest paintings are
genre pictures from peasant life, dependent on Adrien’s. Towards the end
of his brief career he became more interested in outdoor scenes and produced
a series of beautiful and original landscapes, often set in winter.
