Klombeck was one of B.C. Koekkoek’s most famous and talented pupils. He painted dreamy, romantic landscapes and woodland scenes with cattle and occasional figures on a dirt track, a river or valley in the distance. He drew inspiration for his paintings from the unspoiled nature around Kleve, the place where he was born and lived. The Belgian painter Eugène Verboeckhoven, with whom Klombeck worked from 1860 on, often added the cattle in his paintings.
