Born in 1917 in France, Noyer studied at the Ecole des Roches then the Beaux-Arts school in Lyon. He went on to study at the Paul Colin School of Art. He started his painting career in 1943 when he met the famous Parisien art dealer Emmanuel David. He immediately put Noyer on contract with the prestigious Drouant-David Gallery in Paris. He met with instant success after his first one-man show in 1947. Noyer first showed in the United States in 1956 but he had already received the annual Hallmark prize in 1949 and his reputation as a portraitist crossed the ocean. He was commissioned to portray dozens of personalities. His works hang in museums across the USA and in Paris and they are in collections around the world.
