Using Google Analytics, if someone lands on my site onto a page without Google Analytics, and then clicks a link to a page with Google Analytics, can I see that?

I have an e-commerce site where most of the pages are using Google Analytics. However, my blog is not. The blog is hosted in a subdirectory of the same domain (e.g. www.mysite.com/blog).

I want to know the value of my blog, specifically whether any traffic into my main site is coming from my blog (for example a click-through from mysite.com/blog/any-article-no-analytics to mysite.com/some-page-with-analytics).

The reason is that I'm deploying a new site, but want to preserve all high-value pages, some of which may be blog articles.

Yes you should be able to pull out this information. In Google Analytics go to Behaviour >> Site content then Landing pages. You can drill down on the landing page(s) and click the Entrance path tab, this will show you were the traffic came from (internal/external).
