Paul Lauters or Paul Lauteri (16 July 1806 Brussels - 12 November 1875 Brussels), was a Belgian printmaker, illustrator and painter. Lauters studied under the sculptor Charles Malaise (1775–1836) at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts from 1820 to 1823. From 1823 he worked for the Gouban & Dewasme-Pletinckx lithographic company at the same time as Jean-Baptiste Madou. In 1836 he taught at the École Royale de Gravure. He collaborated with the painter Théodore Fourmois in 1839, producing images of the abbey ruins at Villers-la-Ville. In 1840 Lauters produced illustrations for Les Aventures de Till Eulenspiegel and for Les Aventures de Jean-Paul Choppart. During this period François Stroobant was his student. In 1846 Lauters illustrated Le Juif errant. In 1848 he was appointed professor at the Académie des Beaux-Arts of Brussels. He illustrated several popular books including Les Environs de Bruxelles (12 lithographs) and La Légende de Thyl Uilenspiegel (woodcuts, 1868) by Charles de Coster. About 1872 Amédée Lynen (1852-1938) was his student. In 1874 he published Principes de paysages.
