What clients are saying about me and my work.

Birgitte painted my daughter’s portrait and I was told at the time that she was not the easiest subject to “capture”! The end result was however a triumph and the picture has been greatly admired ever since. Birgitte produced a wonderful likeness and I would heartily recommend her to anyone considering commissioning a portrait.

Birgitte Knaus painted me in our apartment in Paris in 1976. We all love her work and the portrait is now since 30 years the centre-piece in our living room. Not only is she a great artist, but also a wonderful friend. Over the years, her work gets even better.

Birgitte Knaus painted all my seven children as well as myself, and I found her not only to be a rarely perceptive, intuitive and highly talented, but also an amiable and inspiring person. We have all been extremely pleased with the excellent portraits in each one of which she has been able to capture the personality of the individual she has painted. I do recommend her as one of the finest portraitists I have come across.

My family and I are indeed most fortunate to have known Birgitte Knaus since the summer of 2000. She has done the most splendid portraits of my three younger grandchildren. She has also done a charming portrait of my rather elderly husband and also a sketch of his hands which are still quite beautiful for a gentleman of his age. Birgitte’s work is truly exquisite, delicate and refined. Great perfection. She is one of the most important portrait painters of our time! She is also a very devoted friend of ours.

…deine Bilder sind nach wie vor so gut wie am Anfang und werden sehr bewundert – wie könnte es anders sein!

Ich liebe das Bild, das Birgitte 1978 von mir und meinen drei Töchtern gemalt hat. Mein Bild hängt bei mir im Salon und wird von allen bewundert.

Birgitte Knaus painted a portrait of me and my family recently. Not only did I like the portraits very much, but I also found her to be reliable and pleasant to be with. She worked quickly and efficiently, and was a pleasure to have around.

I have known Birgitte Knaus since we met in Ibiza in late 1970s. We later commitioned her to do a portrait of my first wife. We were both very happy with the outcome of this portrait. Birgitte was at the time working towards an axhibition and asked if I would be prepared to sit for a portrait. I was more than happy to agree and am now looking at the result hanging on the wall of my office as I write this note. She is in my opinion a very skilled portraitist who has an uncanny knack of getting likenesses.

I met Birgitte Knaus in 1979 in Monte Carlo, where she had just finished a portrait of Lady Petersham. I liked the portrait so much, so that m first husband and I decided to commission Birgitte to do a life size portrait of mine, which we executed in our summer house in Ibiza. We were so pleased with the finals result that consequently, Birgitte started a life size portrait of my first husband. Again it turned out very well. I regard B.K. as a very talented and skilled painter. She is a master of getting the likeness of people and her work in details is superb. We also became good friends ever since.
