Adam van Noort (1561/2 – 1641) was a Flemish painter and draughtsman.
Van Noort was born and died in Antwerp. According to Houbraken who had his son Jacob copy Hendrick Snyers' engraving based on a portrait of him by Van Noort's son-in-law Jacob Jordaens for his Schouburgh, Snyers (or his publisher Jan Meyssens) wrote underneath the portrait that "Adam van Oort" was the son of Lambert van Noort, was born in Antwerp, and that he lived 1557-1641. Houbraken found this engraving in Cornelis de Bie's book of biographies Het Gulden Cabinet. Houbraken went on to mention in a footnote that his father Lambert van Oort came from Amersfoort.
Adam was the teacher to both Peter Paul Rubens and his son-in-law, who married his daughter Elisabeth. Other pupils were Ferdinand van Apshoven the Elder, Hendrick van Balen, Artus de Bruyn, Hendrik van der Eedt, Remoldus Eynhoudt, and Hendrick van Herp.
Van Noort was dean of the Guild of St. Luke from 1597 until 1602. He collaborated with Marten de Vos on the decorations for the Joyous Entry of Archduke Ernest of Austria in 1594, and painted numerous small paintings of religious subjects.
