Cornelis Terlouw, best known as Kees Terlouw, was born in Rotterdam in 1890, where he also began his career as an artist. Afterwards, he worked in Utrecht and The Hague, before leaving for France in 1926, where he lived and worked the rest of his life. He died in Saint-Maur des Fosses (Indra, France) in 1948.
Terlouw painted figures, landscapes (several forest scenes), seascapes and flowers, as well as interiors and genre scenes. Despite his prolonged activity in France, many of his works are painted in a naturalistic Dutch style. This is certainly reflected in his interior pieces, where Terlouw often depicted traditional Dutch clothing and decors.
There is an illegible inscription written in pencil on the back.
