Subjects
This field specifies the various subject categories or genres that constitute the oeuvre of the artist in question. The contents of this field are generally based more on the documentation available at the RKD than on the literature.
landscape (as genre), portrait, Christian religious scene, peasant genre, animal painting (genre), bird scene, botanical representation, study of insects
Several of the birdspecies depicted by Holsteyn are likely adopted from the 'Historia naturalis Brasiliae' of Marckgraf & Piso (1648, or its reproductions in Jonston 1660); other ornitholical works where Holsteyn could have drawn from are: Aldrovandi, Ornithologiae Libri Tres (1599-1603) and Jonston (1650, Dutch edition by Grausius 1660) (annotation Ruud Vlek, 2011)
