The artist Willem Alexander Knip is considered one of the greatest painters of the Laren School. He was born in Amsterdam on January 31st 1883 and lived and worked in Laren (N.H.) and Blaricum for most of his life.
Willem Knip studied to become a decoration painter at the Quelliniusschool in Amsterdam and worked in the studio of Chris Lebeau for some time. He was also a student at the national academy in Amsterdam. To break free from decorative influences he settled in the Gooi area around 1900, where he developed his own balanced impressionist style.
Throughout his life, he undertook many foreign study trips, after which his colour scheme became increasingly lighter. His most beloved subjects were landscapes, harbour views, cityscapes and above all picturesque spots.
His work is included in the book "Schilders van Amsterdam, vier eeuwen stadsgezichten".
His work can be found in various museums, including the Stedelijk Van Abbemuseum Eindhoven, Singer Museum Laren and the national collection.
