Lot Essay

Jan Zoetelief Tromp was born in Jakarta where his father worked as an official in the former Dutch East Indies. He began his artistic career in The Hague and continued in the Academy in Amsterdam. He lived and worked in The Netherlands until 1928, when he moved to France. Tromp was married to the daughter of Bernardus Blommers, and the influence of his father-in-law is clearly evident in his work. His love of strong light and saturated color is demonstrated in this charming portrayal of three children returning home through a field.
