Fairlie Harmar, Viscountess Harberton (1876–1945) was an English painter. She was born in Weymouth, Dorset, and studied at the Slade School of Fine Art.[1] Lady Harberton was married to Ernest Pomeroy, 7th Viscount Harberton.

Whilst reviewing Lady Harberton's work in 1918, Ezra Pound thought she was a man, writing "Mr. F. Harmer [sic] has put good work into it".[citation needed]
