David Bates was born in Cambridge and worked as a porcelain painter at
the Royal Worcester porcelain works in Worcester - where he came to
specialise in painting flowers.
Bates was an 'open-air' rural landscape artist, painting in the
Midlands, Lake District, Scotland and Wales, and abroad in Switzerland
and Egypt. His work shows the influence of Benjamin Williams Leader and Joseph Thors and is associated in style with the Birmingham School of artists.
Bates exhibited many works at the Royal Academy, Grosvenor Gallery,
Royal Society of British Artists and the New Watercolour Society in
London, and at the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists. His works are
currently on display in Liverpool museum, Worcester City Museum, and
several other art galleries.
His son, John Noel Bates (fl. 1870-1927), who adopted the professional
name John Bates Noel, was also a notable landscape painter.
