Fred Yates always said that he painted “for the man in the street”. Ironically, with ever increasing success over recent years, Fred’s paintings have largely become out of reach of that man. However his paintings have always been packed full of his love of life, his love of painting and his love of the people and places that he painted.

This is not The End of the Fred Yates Story, it is not even the beginning of the end, but it
is the end of the beginning.
