OOSTEN, Izaac van
(b. 1613, Antwerpen, d. 1661, Antwerpen)

The Fall of Man

Oil on copper, 70 x 106 cm
Private collection

The Fall of Man, with its woodland landscape and minutely described animals, is a characteristic example of Van Oosten's work. As was often the case with Van Oosten, Adam and Eve may have been the work of a specialist figure painter.
