Alexandre Jean Noel, (1752 – 1834) was a French painter who was a student of Joseph Vernet. He produced seascape and landscape paintings in the style of his teacher.

In 1769, he joined astronomer Jean Chappe d’Auteroche on a scientific expedition to Baja California to observe the transit of Venus. On the trip, Noel served as the draftsman, capturing the journey in watercolor drawings.

The Secretary of the Academie Royale recommended the royal collection purchase these Mexican drawings, which were later added to the Musee du Louvre. Despite contracting yellow fever on the trip, Noel survived while the scientist did not. Little else is known about this talented artist.

Not much else is known about this artist.
