Richard Martin Gallery

Established in 1980, we are an art gallery also providing quality picture framing and fine art restoration within the Gosport, Portsmouth, Fareham and wider Hampshire and West Sussex areas.

We are particularly interested in Britain's maritime heritage and much of our stock relates to sailing vessels of all types including racing yachts, the Royal Navy, and views around Portsmouth Harbour and The Solent.

We also specialise in works by marine artist W.L. Wyllie RA (1851-1931) and Gosport artist Martin Snape (1852-1930).
