Pieter De Pannemaeker came from a lineage well known for their art history in Belgium. Not to be confused with Pieter Pannemaeker who lived in the 16th century, and was most famous for his tapestry work.

In the 19th century when Belgium was the leading center for botanical publishing, the Ghent printmaker, landscape and botanical painter Pieter De Pannemaeker produced some 3,000 illustrations for botanical books and periodicals such as Flore des Serres et des Jardins de l'Europe and Lindenia. He received the Croix de Chevalier de l'Ordre du Mérite Agricole from the French government in 1886 for his contributions to botanical science and horticulture.

Not much is known about his life, but he was prolific in his work and contributed to the documentation of many plant species.
