Jean-Baptiste Pater (December 29 1695July 25 1736) was a French rococo painter.

Born in Valenciennes, Pater was the son of sculptor Antoine Pater and studied under him before becoming a student of Antoine Watteau. He was accepted into the Académie in 1728. His most prominent customer was Frederick the Great, who sat for two portraits in the "Turquerie" style: LeSultan au Harem and Le Sultan au Jardin.

The majority of Pater's works are close in style and subject to the fêtes galantes of Watteau. He died in Paris in 1736.
