Fred Yates


Have recently purchased a particularly nice West Country painting by Fred Yates. Fred died in 2008 and his work is becoming very collectable. This oil on board depicts the ferry at Fowey and is approx. 24 inches wide. It is signed but not dated. I have spoken to a highly regarded art historian, who was also a friend of Fred Yates and he advises that this in all probability would have been painted in the early 1970's, a period he regards as when Fred produced his best work. Offers invited.
