Henriette Ronner-Knip was brought into the world in Amsterdam and came from a creative family. She examined painting under her dad, Joseph Augustus Knip. In the wake of selling her first canvas at fifteen years old, she delivered extraordinary craftsmanship which are in plain view in numerous European exhibition halls, remembering the Gemeentemuseum for The Hague, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, and the Dordrecht Museum. Her initial long stretches of painting included kind scenes, scenes, and still-lifes, even though she later settled herself as a painter of felines and canines. In 1876 the Queen of Belgium charged her to paint two of her 1 lap-canines.
This work's achievement prompted further renowned commissions from great names, including Emperor William I of Germany, Baron Tindal of Amsterdam, the Duchess of Edinburgh, and the Princess of Wales. Henriette Ronner-Knip has granted the Cross of the Leopold Order, an uncommon accomplishment for a lady craftsman. After her marriage in 1850 to Telco Ronner, Henriette Ronner-Knip got comfortable in Brussels, where she stayed until her demise in 1909. A significant review of her work was held at the Kunsthal in Rotterdam in 1998.
