Knip, Henriette
(1821-1909)
   Henriette Knip was born in Amsterdam on 31 May 1821. A descendent of two generations of painters, Knip moved to Brussels in 1850, shortly after her marriage to Feico Ronner. In the Netherlands she painted nature scenes featuring woods, meadows, and cattle, but, following her move to Brussels, Knip concentrated on canvases populated most prominently by dogs and cats, which became her trademark subjects. The majority of her most famous paintings, known for their anecdotal character, were produced after 1870. Knip lived at many residences in the Brussels area. In her large garden behind her final home on the chaussée de Vleurgat she kept numerous dogs, cats, and even a parrot, which she brought regularly to her studio for poses. A recipient of many honors, she enjoyed great success at showings throughout Europe, the United States, and Australia. Knip died in Ixelles on 2 March 1909.
