1821, May 311909, Feb 28
a Dutch-Belgian artist in the Romantic style who is best known for her animal paintings; especially cats. She was born into a family of artists and she received her first lessons from her father, Josephus Augustus Knip, who also gave lessons to her aunt (his youngest sister), Henriƫtte Geertruida Knip. Henriette was essentially in charge of the family's finances and legal obligations, and had begun painting seriously by 1835. She was a participant in the Exhibition of Living Masters in 1838. After her step-mother's death, she moved to Amsterdam where she painted farms, animals and forests from nature; first in watercolor, then in oils.
