George Noyes was born in Bothwell, Ontario, in 1864. He studied in Massachusetts in the early 1880s and at the Académie Colarossi in Paris from 1890 to 1893. As an accomplished Impressionist landscape painter of the Boston School, he taught a summer class in Annisquam, MA, where one of his early students was N.C. Wyeth. He was based at Fenway Studios in Boston in 1908-10, and then traveled extensively, painting in Europe, Mexico, and North Africa. He exhibited frequently at the Boston Art Club; other exhibitions included the Pennsylvania Academy, the Pan-Pacific Expo in San Francisco, the Corcoran Gallery, and other Boston galleries. In 1939, a studio fire destroyed a significant portion of his life’s work. He died in New Hampshire in 1954.
