Ten Kate came from an artist family. He was the son of the romantic painter Mari ten Kate, from whom he probably also learned the trade. In 1881 he made a study trip to Paris, where he was influenced by Impressionism. He also visited London. From 1874 he lived and worked in The Hague. Usually he is also counted as a member of The Hague School, although he never denied his romantic roots. His choice of theme was varied, with a certain emphasis on beach scenes, landscapes and genre scenes. Ten Kate was a member of the Hague artist society Pulchri Studio. He died in 1896 at the age of 36. His work is part of the collection of the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag.
