Johannes Marius (Jan) ten Kate (1859-1896) – Back from fishing


More information

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.
