Adriaen van Ostade was born and worked in Haarlem. He was a pupil of Frans Hals at the same time as Adriaen Brouwer, who is famous for this tavern and peasant scenes and who influenced van Ostade. Van Ostade painted and etched peasant scenes; he also painted a few biblical subjects and small portraits.
