Henriette Ronner-Knip, Dutch Painter (1821-1909)

Henriette Ronner-Knip was born in Amsterdam into the family of the artist Joseph Augustus Knip, who gave her her first lessons of drawing.
At the age of 15 she sold her first painting. She became quite popular and her paintings were exhibited in many European museums, including the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and the Dordrecht Museum.
The first years of her work was devoted to the genre painting, landscapes and still lifes, but later Henriette became best known for her paintings of subjects from nature, especially cats and dogs.

In 1876, Queen of Belgium ordered her a picture of her two favorite dogs on her lap and the success of this work has resulted in a number of royal clients - Emperor Wilhelm I of Germany, Baron Tindal in Amsterdam, the Duchess of Edinburgh and the Princess of Wales. Henriette Ronner-Knip was awarded the Cross of Leopold, which is a rare achievement for an artist. After her marriage to Feico Ronner in 1850 the painter moved to Belgium where she lived until her death in 1909.
The largest retrospective exhibition of her works was held in Kunsthal Rotterdam in 1998.
