John Robertson Reid studied at the Royal Scottish Academy and lived for a while in Surrey. He moved to Cornwall in 1881 and stayed for 20 years. His earlier style was often measured and precise, sometimes rather like the work of the emerging Newlyn School led by Stanhope Forbes. However, in the later 1880s, his painting style became looser and more physical. Reid was a frequent exhibitor at the Royal Academy and later became involved in the development of the Glasgow School.
