John Little (born 1928) is a Canadian artist. He primarily paints urban images of his home city of Montreal in oils, in the Fauvist style. After studying at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and with the Art Students League of New York (where he met Ray Bailley and helped to illustrate the Bruce Gentry comic strip), Little joined his family’s architectural practice in 1949, working as a draftsman. After his marriage in 1953 he made painting his primary profession, joining the Royal Canadian Academy in 1961 and becoming a full member in 1973.

Little’s work is held in collections at the National Museum of Canada, the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, the Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery at Concordia University, and the Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art.
