Pieter Claesz (c. 1597–1 ianuarie 1660) a fost un pictor olandez de naturi statice din epoca numita „varsta de aur olandeza”.
S-a nascut in Berchem, Belgia, langa Antwerp, unde a devenit mHaarlem embru al breslei St. Luke in 1620. S-a mutat la Haarlem in 1621, unde s-a nascut fiul sau, pictorul peisagist Nicolaes Pieterszoon Berchem. El si Willem Claeszoon Heda, care lucra de asemenea in Haarlem, au fost cei mai importanti exponenti ai „ontbijt” sau micul dejun. Au pictat intro gama de culori, efectiv monocromatice, folosirea subtila a luminii si texturii fiind principalele mijloace de expresie. Claesz a ales in general obiecte mai canice decat Heda, chiar daca lucrarile lui ulterioare au devenit mai  colorate si decorative. Naturile statice ale lui Claesz sugereaza deseori alegorii, cu cranii servind ca reamintire a mortalitatii umane. Cei doi artisti au fondat o traditie deosebita de pictura a naturii statice in Haarlem. Pieter Claesz a fost influentat de miscarea artistica ‘Vanitas’.
Claesz este inregistrat in breasla St. Luke din Haarlem ca profesor al fiului sau, Nicolaes Berchem, in 1634, insa Nicolaes a preferat pictatul de peisaje. Claesz a mai avut si alti elevi in afara fiului sau, pe Evert van Aelst, Floris van Dyck, Christian Berentz, Floris van Schooten si Jan Jansz Treck.
