ROESTRAETEN Pieter Gerritsz van (b. ca. 1630, Haarlem, d. 1700, London) Nationality : Dutch

Dutch painter, active in England. From 1646, when he entered the Guild of St Luke in Haarlem as a portrait painter, until 1651, he was apprenticed to Frans Hals, whose daughter, Adriaentje Hals, he married in 1654. Sometime between 1663 and 1665 he and Adriaentje went to London. Van Roestraeten was one of the more successful of the many Dutch painters who tried to make a living in England during the late seventeenth century. Peter Lely, apparently afraid of competition in the field of portraiture, offered to introduce van Roestraten to Charles II on the condition that he ceased painting portraits.
