Isaac Oliver was born 1560 in Rougen, France. He spent most of his life in London. For education he was a good student and scholar. "...a contemporary reference describes him as Hilliard 'well profiting scholar'..." (Gale Biography in context). He worked on becoming a good artist. He was a painter and he made multiple miniatures such as, 2 of girls age four and five, his self portrait, and other miniatures that were successful. He is a symbol of Humanism because of architecture. His work is a symbol of Realism because it portrays the realistic view of this time period. Isaac Oliver was a very detailed renaissance artist that was important to this time period's architecture.
