John MacLauchlan Milne was born in Edinburgh, the son of artist Joseph Milne. His father encouraged him to paint and he studied at Edinburgh College of Art. He then worked at Kingoodie near Dundee until the outbreak of the First World War, during which he served with the Royal Flying Corps. At the end of the war he went to France, first to Paris where he became interested in street scenes, and then to the south of France with his french wife. He received a stipend from the Dundee marmalade makers, Keillers, in return for a proportion of his work.   Whilst in France, Milne often stayed at Cassis where he met Scottish Colourists F.C. Cadell and S.J. Peploe. He has often been associated with their style of work although his biggest influence was Paul Cezanne. at the outbreak of the Second World War, he returned to Scotland and settled on the Isle of Arran, at High Corrie.   He exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy and Glasgow Institute as well as in galleries in London and New York. A centenary exhibition was held in Gallery in 1985.
