KNIP, Nicolaas Frederik
(b. 1741, Nijmegen, d. 1808, 's-Hertogenbosch)


Dutch painter, part of a family of artists. He began his career in 1772 as a wallpaper painter in Tilburg and from 1786 was active in 's-Hertogenbosch. His work has an artisan character. He also painted signboards ('s-Hertogenbosch, Noordbrabants Museum). He worked with other artists such as Quirinus van Amelsfoort (1762-1820), to whose landscapes he sometimes added staffage (e.g. 's-Hertogenbosch, Stadhuis). Later he concentrated on flower and fruit still-lifes, which were of variable quality. He lost his sight in 1795.
