    Van Bloemen predominantly painted classical landscapes, taking his inspiration not too far from Rome, with mountains, streams, distant hamlets and small inhabitants painted using small dots and spirited brush strokes with a ‘difficult-to-define’ pastoral ambience. His painted vedute combine reality with imaginary elements.

    His subjects were limited to views in the immediate vicinity of Rome, an outline of which was typically visible in his compositions. Van Bloemen was in particular known for his ‘estate views’ representing the estates of the nobility in the Roman Campagna.
