Pieter Gallis (1633, Enkhuizen - 1697, Hoorn), was a Dutch Golden Age painter.
According to Houbraken, he painted as a hobby, since he earned his living as the director of the local pawn shop (Bank van Lening).He specialized in landscapes, flowers, fruit and other forms of still life. He was a very friendly man, especially to artists and art collectors.
He was active in Enkhuizen (and perhaps Amsterdam), in Purmerend from 1679-1683, and in Hoorn from 1683 until his death. Swag of Flowers Hanging in a Niche oil on panel, 35.6 x 43.8 cm (14 x 17¼ in)
