Johann Peter Hasenclever (1810–1853) was a German painter, known mostly for his genre subjects.
His works are usually humorous genre subjects, such as "A family quarrel" (1837, New Pinakothek, Munich); “Tasting wine,” and “The reading room” (1843, both in National Gallery, Berlin); "Topers in the wine cellar" (1847, Ravené Gallery, Berlin).
He also executed a series of scenes from Carl Arnold Kortum's Jobsiade, including Hieronymus Jobs im Examen (The examination) (1840, New Pinakothek, Munich); "The school" (1846, Ravené Gallery, Berlin); and "Jobs as night watchman" (1852, Ravené Gallery, Berlin). His "Gaming table" is his most important work of a serious nature. He was also successful in portraiture.
