Pierre Monier or Mosnier (17 May 1641 – 29 December 1703) was a French painter.
Mosnier was born in Blois. His father Jean Monier was also painter, and was his early instructor. In 1663 he won the inaugural Prix de Rome award for painting. In 1665 he traveled to Rome to continue his studies at the School of Rome. He moved back and took up residency in Paris, where he put into practice his teachings for a number of commissions. These were primarily religious-themed works for churches, such as for the Saint-Sulpice, Paris.
Mosnier later taught at the Académie de peinture et de sculpture. In 1698 he wrote and published a series of three books on art: History of the Arts which Relate to the Design. He died in Paris in 1703.
