Jan Zoetelief Tromp painted most of his work in the towns of Blaricum and Katwijk. Agrarian life in Blaricum first captured his interest in 1899, and in 1905 he ‘discovered’ Katwijk, where he subsequently spent summers with his family and finally settled permanently in 1914. Tromp painted the daily lives of the fishing community, and especially pictures with children, showing them playing on the beach, shepherding goats or returning from the dunes. These scenes are all idyllic and resonate with a familial contentment that presumably reflected his own. Being both deaf and somewhat introverted, Tromp preferred to use his own wife and children as models.
