Henriette Ronner-Knip ( 1821 - 1909)
Henriette Ronner was born in Amsterdam on 31st May 1821, the third generation of a family of painters. Her father, Josephus Augustus Knip (1777-1847) who had studied with his father N F Knip, was a painter of landscape and animals who travelled extensively. At an early age Henriette had lived in Paris and Rome, and extant drawings of animals and Roman views show her precocious talent. She studied with her father and in her early years painted landscapes and animals in a similar manner, producing co-operative works on occasions.
