Known forPastoral Landscape Painting

Klomp's typical pastoral landscape paintings can be seen in museums such as the Rijksmuseum,[2] the Fitzwilliam Museum,[3] and The Metropolitan Museum of Art.[4] Klomp's work is reminiscent of that of Paulus Potter. Although it is not certain that they worked together, the two artists share similar subjects and style, and Klomp's work has been wrongly attributed to Potter in the past.[5]
