Fred Yates 1922-2008

In the early 1990's Yates moved to France to a small village called Rancon in department 87, Haute-Vienne . Here he painted local scenes, one of his favourites being a small chapel in the woods just outside Rancon, called Saint-Sulpice. He both met and encouraged local artists and worked with British artists based in the area. In his later years he purchased a house in Drome, Provence, where the light and air were more suited to a man in his 80's. Despite his advanced age he continued to paint regularly & travel widely. Yates died of a heart attack in July 2008 and is buried in one of his favourite spots in Cornwall overlooking St. Michaels Mount. He has works in private collections in France, UK, Canada and the United States of America and is one of our most loved artists.
