Born in Ghent, Belgium in 1825, David de Noter was the son and pupil of Jean Baptise de Noter (1786-1855) a designer and architect, and also the grandson of the painter Pieter-Frans de Noter (1748-1830).
De Noter became a still life painter of distinction, due to his accomplished style of painting and dramatic contrast of colours. He received a vermilion medal in 1845 and a gold medal in 1854 for his work.
He married Malines Clémence Wauters in 1845 and they went on to have seven children. After staying in France and more particularly in the Parisian suburbs, at Pecq, and then at Le Vésinet in 1867 he went with his family to Algeria.
De Noter exhibited in Courtrai, Brussels, London, Paris and various other venues in Europe, including the Paris Salon exhibitions in 1855 and 1864. He was also included in the exhibition ‘Painters from the Other Shore, Algiers’ 1830-1930 (Les Peintres de l’autre rive. Alger 1830-1930) at the Musée de la Castre in Cannes.
Today his work is held in many acclaimed collections and institutions across the world, including Amsterdam Museum, Alte Nationalgalerie in Berlin, Musée des Beaux-Arts in brest and Mulhouse. Also, there is a panel in Courtrai Museum painted by de Noter of birds and flowers and a still life in the Brussels Museum.
