Fred Yates loved Cornwall and in particular he loved Marazion. Marazion is an ancient market town and was granted a Royal Charter by Queen Elizabeth 1 in 1595.

Today Marazion remains relatively unspoilt by progress and Fred was charmed by the character of its buildings and people, magnificent views and it’s jewel in the crown – St Michaels Mount.

The name Marazion originates from the Cornish Marghas Byghan or little market….

    I own Fred’s old studio overlooking St Michaels Mount & the Bay, which he lived across the road from. It is now a holiday let but when you walk in you can see why he was inspired to paint here. The light is pure & the ever changing colours of the sea is reflected in the rooms.
