Élise Bruyère (1776–1847) was a French painter who specialized in portraits and floral still lifes.

Bruyère was the daughter of Jean-Jacques-François Le Barbier (1738–1836), a noted French writer, illustrator, and painter of French historical scenes. Her sister Henriette was also a painter. Bruyère was of the Realist school of French painting, she had studied with Jean-Baptiste Jacques Augustin and Jan Frans van Dael[1][2] and her still lifes, particularly her paintings of flowers, are remarkably detailed. A typical work, Vase de fleurs, is in the Musée du Louvre in Paris.[3][4]
