He had two brothers; one was to become a painter as well, the other one became a poet and preacher. Ten Kate grew up, lived and worked in The Hague until 1867 and then moved to Amsterdam in 1868. During his life he travelled to many countries such as Belgium, Germany and Italy.
He also visited France in 1840 and 1841, to study after the great masters. In 1847 he became a member of the Royal Academy in Amsterdam.
From 1856 onwards Ten Kate was a member of the Rotterdam Academy as well and for many years he was chairman of Arti et Amicitiae (Painters Guild) in Amsterdam. The influence of the Frans Hals School is clear in his work.
He was a storyteller as was Ten Kate and they both used rich colours and good composition to depict the scenes they were painting. During his life Ten Kate was an extremely successful and popular artist.
In 1872, when he was 50 years old, his design of the portrait of the Dutch King William III was even used on a stamp. However, he was best known for his paintings of Cavaliers and military figures in all types of situations.
The high quality of his work and the life he portrayed made his paintings widely sought after. Ten Kate died on the 26th of March 1891 in The Hague, at the age of 69. If you are collecting in person and wish to pay cash that is fine too.
