Martin Snape: An artist’s view of Gosport

Martin Snape (1852 – 1930) is one of Gosport’s most celebrated artists. An accomplished topographical painter with a keen interest in the flora and fauna of Hampshire, Snape’s love of the area is evident in his sensitive depictions of the town, the harbour front and surrounding landscapes.

This exhibition presents artworks on paper from the collections cared for by Hampshire Cultural Trust, including some works not seen in public before. Snape worked in a variety of mediums and his preparatory sketches and watercolours reflect his prolific working practice. His recordings of the ever-changing scenes of the area are accompanied by historic photographs carefully selected by The Friends of Gosport Museum. Together they reveal a unique insight into the Gosport of Snape’s time.
