James McLachlan Nairn

J. M. Nairn was born in Glasgow in 1859, studying at the Glasgow School of Art and the Glasgow Art Club. On account of bad health he emigrated to New Zealand in 1890, spent some time at Mataura, and finally settled in Wellington. In 1891 he was appointed Instructor in Art at the Wellington School of Design, and directed classes in life, antique, and still life painting. He died in 1904. He worked mainly in oils and water colours.
