Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Robert van den Hoecke (30 November 1622 – 1668), also known as Robrecht van den Hoecke, was a Flemish Baroque painter of battle scenes in the manner of Pieter Snayers.

He was the son of Gaspar van den Hoecke and the brother of Jan van den Hoecke. Born in Antwerp, he was a pupil of his father. He became a master in the city's Guild of St. Luke in 1644–45, and after 1649 Van den Hoecke was active in Brussels at the court of Archduke Leopold Wilhelm of Austria.

Gonzales Coques painted his portrait — also an allegory of sight for a series of the five senses—which shows him as "Controleur des fortifications". He was also an architect of note. As controller of the fortifications of Flanders, he painted many views of camps, battles, and cities. His work is well represented in the Vienna Gallery.
