Picture Gallery of Cornelis van der Geest[1] (1628; Rubenshuis, Antwerp) is a painting by Willem van Haecht of the art collection of Cornelis van der Geest.

The left side of the painting includes various portraits of contemporaneous figures, including (from the left) Infanta Isabel Clara of Spain, Archduke Albert of Austria, Peter Paul Rubens, Prince Władysław Vasa of Poland (who visited van der Geest's Gallery in 1624, with black hat) and the host showing a picture, as well as many famous paintings like Paracelsus by Quentin Matsys.
