The brothers Jan Symonsz Pynas (c. 1583, Alkmaar - buried Dec 27 1631, Amsterdam) and Jacob Symonsz Pynas (c. 1592, Haarlem or Amsterdam - after 1650, Delft?) were Dutch painters of the Baroque period. Their sister Meynsge married the artist Jan Tengnagel in 1611.Jacob may have briefly been a teacher of the Dutch master painter, Rembrandt, and the Pynas brothers are both a noted influence on him. The Pynas brothers were grouped within Dutch artists called the Pre-Rembrandtists.

Their work is close in style to the painter Adam Elsheimer, and there has been a history of mis-attribution between the three, where the Pynas brothers are known to have signed their works "J. Pynas.
