A Farmyard

This is one of Isack van Ostade's early works. He was a pupil of his older brother Adriaen van Ostade and this composition is based on those of his brother. However, he was later to develop into a powerfully original painter. Unfortunately, his promising career was cut short by his premature death at the age of 28.
