Pieter Franciscus Dierckx (Antwerp, 7 February 1871 - Antwerp, 4 September 1950) was a Belgian impressionist painter of landscapes and portraits and also an etcher and graphic designer. He was a student at the art academy in Antwerp and at the higher institute in Antwerp. His teachers were among others Juliaan De Vriendt, his brother Albert De Vriendt and Karel Verlat.

Pieter Dierckx was a member of the Antwerp art society “ De Scalden“. He became director of the drawing academy of Temse in September 1896 and also taught drawing. He changed the way and content of the teaching and brought the school to a higher level and is regarded as one of the most important directors in the 230 year existence of the drawing academy in Temse.

As an etcher and graphic designer he provided his services to clubs and societies. During the first world war he mainly painted country images such as: "the potato peelers in an old age home“, “a sober meal”, “a thatch making place”, “the lace maker”, “a clog maker”, “a basket maker”, “the small quay” (1917), “a burned farm”, “a level crossing attendant”, “a weaver family”, “the spinning wheel”, “piety on the heather”, etc. The main theme in his paintings is landscapes, mainly concentrating on forest views. He belonged to the neo-impressionistic school, therefore light was a very important instrument in his works.

Since 1952 the “Pieter Dierckx Prize for Painting” is issued biannually at the drawing academy in Temse.  In 1986 the town of Temse honoured Pieter Dierckx by naming a street after him.
