Question
i have a watercolor signed by John Buchanan showing a landscape scene dated 1931 or 34? titled a Scottish loch showing the loch and the surrounding mountain ranges it seems to be well painted  could you tell me more about this artist 'John Buchanan' many thanks David

Answer
Dear David, Searching through numerous dictionaries of artists, including three on British artists I find only one mention of a John Buchanan that would fit your time period. A "John C. Buchanan" exhibited at the Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts in 1932. He lived in Kilmacolm, Renfrewshire. There are no auction records.
regards,
Dan
