Best known for his genre scenes showing tavern life and carousing peasants, van Ostade was a pupil of Frans Hals and Adriaen Brouwer. By 1634 he had joined the Saint Luke’s Guild in Haarlem, and he seems to have been studying with Salomon van Ruysdael, who sued him in 1640 for defaulting on his payments for tuition and rent. However, by 1662 he had become a thoroughly respectable member of the artistic community in Haarlem, and was appointed as dean of the Guild. His pupils included his brother Isack (q.v.), Cornelis Bega, Cornelis Dusart and Jan Steen.
