Isaac was the younger brother of the artist Adriaen van Ostade (1610-1685), who was also his first teacher. The two prolific brothers worked mainly in their native city of Haarlem, and are most famous for their peasant and low-life genre scenes. Isaac became a master in the Haarlem Guild of St. Luke in 1643, but passed away in 1649. His career lasted only a decade, but within that short time his output was exceptional.
