John Blair (c. 1849 – 13 October 1934) was a Scottish painter, predominantly of watercolour landscapes.] Of humble beginnings in Berwickshire, he moved to Edinburgh to study and spent the rest of his life there. His paintings mainly reflect the landscapes around him, both of urban settings and also of the castles, sea and lochs of the Borders, although he also painted figures and still lifes. As well as his original work, his paintings were viewed by a wide audience in the form of picture postcards, book endpapers and illustrations.
Several works by Blair have been exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy between 1870 and 1920
