Catalogue Note

Among the group of artists who form the Dutch Romantic school, Mari ten Kate is the most renowned painter of children. The present work epitomizes the subject matter for which ten Kate acquired fame: children at play. He delights in the presentation of a snowball fight, riding a sleigh, or playing a prank, usually involving a companion dog, and always suffused with warm Romantic light.
