Charles ‘Snaffles’ Johnson Payne (1884 – 1967) was an English painter who specialised in water colours, and who’s subject matter was invariably equestrian (racing, hunting, polo and pig sticking), military or a combination of these. Snaffles had a very distinctive style by showing just one person in detail, in addition he added remarques and amusing captions to supplement the pictures and main title.
