Pieter van Roestraeten was a Dutch genre and still-life painter. He, and Vincent van der Vinne, a Haarlem painter best known for his still-lifes, are the only documented students of Frans Hals. However, not a trace of their contact with him is evident in their works. Van Roestraeten married Adriaentje, Frans Hals's daughter of his second marriage.
