Théophile Emile Achille de Bock (14 January 1851, in The Hague – 22 November 1904, in Haarlem) was a Dutch painter belonging to the Hague School. Hague School champions love his work. Even Van Gogh was convinced of De Bocks “artistic temperament”, although he eventually found his choice of subject too limited and tried to get De Bock to paint figure studies. But De Bock stuck to the subject he was good at, the Dutch landscapes. De Bock was a contemporary of the French Barbizon school.
