landscape (as genre), portrait, peasant genre, bird scene, animal painting (genre), study of insects
Various bird species depicted by the Holsteyns were probably taken from the 'Historia naturalis Brasiliae' by Marckgraf & Piso (1648, or the reproductions thereof in Jonston 1660); other ornithological works from which the Holsteyns may have copied drawings of birds are Aldrovandi, Ornithologiae Libri Tres (1599-1603) and Jonston (1650, Dutch edition by Grausius 1660) (communication Ruud Vlek, 2011)
