Armand Bouten (1893-1965) and EJ Bouten-Klinkhamer (Dutch, early 20th Century) are the only 'Bouten'(s) I have heard of.

I also have 2 paintings by Cor Bouten and have been trying feverously to find some information on him and the paintings that I have. Any information you have would be appreciated.

Cornelis Wouter Bouter (Dutch artist) did a painting called "Mother and Children" same as you described. You can see it online at the Odon Wagner Gallery - I believe the bottom right hand corner of your painting is Cor Bouter. Best wishes and Happy New Year. Lynn
