Robert Watson (28 February 1923 – 14 December 2004) was an artist born in Martinez, California. He is known for his paintings of mysterious landscapes occupied by solitary figures amidst ancient buildings, calm deserts and expanding oceans. Watson provided the cover art for Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles, second edition, printed in 1953. This is probably his best known work.

On May 17, 1997, Watson had a 50 year retrospective show at the Weinstein Gallery in San Francisco, California. Mayor Willie Brown proclaimed that day "Robert Watson Day".

Watson's works can be found in galleries around the world and are owned by celebrities and dignitaries such as Burt Reynolds, Vincent Price, and the Duchess of Windsor.
