Clara Peeters was a Flemish still-life painter from Antwerp, Belgium, who worked in both the Spanish Netherlands and Dutch Republic during the early 17th century. She is the best-known female Flemish artist of this era and one of the few women artists working professionally in 17th century Europe, despite restrictions on women's access to artistic training and membership in guilds. Peeters specialized in still-life paintings focusing on breakfast pieces and banquet pieces.
