|Fred Yates (b1922)
|Fred Yates was born in 1922 and grew up in Urmston, a suburb of
Untutored, Fred began to paint pictures of the rich industrial
architecture of Manchester, the red brick terraces and the commotion and
humour of street life - a theme that the artist is still concerned with
to this day.
He enrolled on a teacher training course at Bournemouth College of Art
and in 1950 won a travelling scholarship to Rome and Florence. He taught
for twenty years.
In 1969 Fred gave up teaching and moved to Cornwall to enable him to
devote all his energy to painting. He lived at Fowey, St Just and
Marazion. He remained in Cornwall until 1998, apart from the years 1990
to 1995, when he lived in Provence (Vaucluse) and Brighton (1994/5).
In 1998 Fred lived in various villages in the Limousin, France. In 2002
he moved to Provence, where he lived until his death in July 2008.
His paintings are included in many private and public collections.
