Carl Heinrich Bloch, 1834-, 1890, was a Danish painter. The celebrated Danish painter, Carl Heinrich Bloch, was born on May 23, 1834, in Copenhagen, Denmark. He was the son of merchant Joergen Peter Bloch and Ida Emilie Ulrikke Henriette Weitzmann Bloch. Bloch's parents wanted their son to enter a respectable profession - an officer in the Navy. This, however, was not what Carl wanted. His only interest was drawing and painting, and he was consumed by the idea of becoming an artist. In 1853 Bloch went on his first study-trip to Jyderup, Denmark, where his artistic progress, during this period in his life, placed him on the "correct side" within the art society. Bloch developed a following for his religious paintings and until this day these are what he is best known for.
