Product Description

An amusing painting of Bathers in Cornwall by the famous artist Fred Yates (1922 - 2008).

The painting is typical of his naive style with heavily applied paint and coarse outlines. The colours are strong and denote that it is probably one of his earlier pieces, as later examples tend to have a lighter colour palette. At the time Yates was often so poor he couldn't afford paintbrushes, so fashioned them out of frayed sticks.

The painting is framed in bleached oak, glazed and is in very good condition. It is not signed but is without doubt an original piece of his work.

Fred Yates was born in Lancashire and turned to painting after WWII. He moved to Cornwall and obtained recognition for his work in the 1970s. Later, in the 1990s, he moved to France, where he continued painting. He is buried in Cornwall, overlooking St Michael's Mount.
