About the Artist
Hennette Ronner Knip, lived from 1821 to 1909. She 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. Her early and formative years of painting included genre scenes, landscapes and still-lives, 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.


About the Print
This print is finished with a matte "textured" coating, which gives your art an elegant appearance. Then, we framed it in our F2151 "masterpiece" frame, giving a museum quality appearance. All of our richly designed frames have an antique finish with subtle accents to highlight the intricate detail, then a low sheen sealer is applied. The Watermark in the center of the images will not appear on final art.


About the Frame
These masterpiece frames are made of solid wood, with the exception of the F3242 frame, which is cast resin, and then covered with an outer layer of sculpting material called Gesso (pronounced like Jesso). You can see this outer layer on the side views of the frames. Gesso is a traditional mix of a glue binder, chalk, and white pigment, used to coat rigid surfaces, such as wooden painting panels as an absorbent primer coat substrate for painting. It is also used by sculptures to prepare the shape of the final sculpture (fused bronze) or directly as a material for sculpting. Gesso can also be used as a layer between sculptured wood and gold leaf. A collection of gesso sculptures is properly called gypsotheque. Please allow 5-7 weeks for this work of art.
