Henriette Ronner-Knip art prints and posters

Born in Amsterdam in 1821, Henriette Ronner Knip came from an artistic family and she studied art under her father, Joseph Augustus Knip.

After selling her first painting at the age of fifteen she produced an outstanding body of work which is now on display in many European museums, including the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and the Dordrecht Museum.

Her early and formative years of painting included genre scenes, landscapes and still-lifes, although she later established herself as a painter of cats and dogs. In 1876 the Queen of Belgium commissioned her to paint two of her favourite lap-dogs and the success of this work led to further prestigious commissions from great names including Emperor William I of Germany, Baron Tindal of Amsterdam, the Duchess of Edinburgh and the Princess of Wales. The following year Henriette Ronner-Knip was awarded the Cross of the Leopold Order; a rare achievement for a woman artist.

After her marriage in 1850 to Telco Ronner, Henriette Ronner-Knip settled in Brussels where she remained until her death in 1909. A major retrospective of her work was held at the Kunsthal in Rotterdam in 1998.

More about framing

Exploded-product

In the Design Studio

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.

Colour Perfecting in the Print Room

In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.

Measuring Up

After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.

Assembling Frames in the Framing Workshop

We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.

Hand-finishing in the Framing Workshop

Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.

The Last Stop

In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.

Mounting the Prints

The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.

Laying the Glass

Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.

The Final Product

After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.

Transferring to Canvas

For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.

Finishing the Canvas Edging

As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
