Jacob Cornelisz van Oostsanen was a painter and engraver from the northern Netherlands. He came from a family of artists: he, his brother, his uncle and his son all used the same monogram. Jacob van Oostsanen was one of the first printmaking artists in Holland. He specialised in large-scale religious depictions, which required several printing plates. Van Oostsanen worked mainly in Amsterdam, but lived briefly in Antwerp around 1520 and made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land in 1525. His oeuvre includes about 30 paintings and over 200 woodcuts. He also provided designs for embroidery on liturgical vestments and for stained glass.
