COUNTRY INN Martin Snape made this drawing of The George on Portsdown Hill in 1901

Although born in Gosport (1852), much of his work was of scenes in Portsmouth and around the fringes of Portsmouth Harbour.

Snape died in 1930 and one of his most famous paintings, Forton Creek, which is one of a series, hangs in the town hall at Gosport.

Snape exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1874 and 1901.
