Peeter Gijsels or Pieter Gijsels (1621, Antwerp – 1690, Antwerp), was a Flemish Baroque painter. He is known for his landscapes, architectural compositions and still lifes. His landscapes in the style of Jan Brueghel the Elder were very sought after in his time. He is also regarded as a genre painter as he painted village scenes of village markets and kermises.

Peeter Gijsels is known for his landscapes, architectural scenes and still life paintings. He also was a genre artist who painted many scenes of Flemish village kermisses, dances and markets. His compositions are typically small-scale and painted on copper.

His landscape paintings are brightly colored and often populated with many figures in the style of Jan Brueghel the Elder. Because of this similarity with Jan Brueghel the Elder’s landscapes, the Dutch biographer Arnold Houbraken erroneously stated that Gijsels studied with Brueghel. Even though there is no documentary evidence to support this, the close stylistic similarity with Brueghel’s work has given rise to the assumption that the artist may have worked or trained with Brueghel’s son, Jan Brueghel the Younger, who worked in the style of his father. In addition to village scenes Gijsels also painted landscape compositions with elegant figures such as the Elegant company making music with a lady and a gentleman dancing around a maypole (Christie’s London sale of 7 December 2006 lot 34). Gijsels painted many river and coastal landscapes.

His still lifes include flower still lifes, game and hunting pieces in landscapes and kitchen scenes with fruit, vegetables and kitchen utensils.
