Pieter Jansz. Quast (1606, Amsterdam - May or June 1647, Amsterdam) was a Dutch painter and engraver.

From 1634 to 1641 he lived at The Hague[1]. His pictures usually resemble those of Brouwer and A. van Ostade, and represent beggars and assemblies of boors merry-making, treated with a great deal of humour and not less vulgarity. He has been termed "the Dutch Callot." Of his paintings there remain:

* Berlin. Suermondt Coll. An Officer.
* Brunswick. Gallery. Spirit-dealer and a Woman.
