Emma Alice Henriette Ronner, née Knip, was a painter.


She studied with her father the painter Josephus Augustus Knip (1777-1847). During her early career she painted mostly landscapes but in 1850 her marriage to Teico Ronner brought a move to Brussels where she focussed on animal studies of cats and dogs. A number of her works are in the Gemeentemuseum, The Hague.
