Please be aware that over the last 2 – 3 years there have been hundreds of terrible quality Fred Yates copies being sold on Ebay. Some of these are based on known genuine originals, while others bare little resemblance to a genuine Fred Yates painting. These worthless works are known as trappers. Often they are sold as in the manner of the artist, sometimes the vendors pretend to have a provenance. Make no mistake the vendors know that these paintings are NOT genuine works painted by Fred Yates. They are hoping that someone with little knowledge of the artist will take a chance that they have found a bargain. Ebay has little interest in whether a painting is genuine or not. DON’T WASTE YOUR HARD – EARNED MONEY.
