Product Description

An unusual and quite unique painting by the world renowned Fred Yates (1922-2008) in that it is much darker than the usual colours in his paintings.

It was apparently painted in the early 70's when he was depressed by the death of a close friend. It shows his distinctive people marching up to a promontory overlooking the sea, as if they were going to trow themselves over the edge. The sky is dark and the composition is slightly disturbing.

The painting is not signed but is certainly a Yates and is guaranteed as such. He put the picture into an old frame, but painted it sea blue over the gilding. Condition is very good with the frame carrying a few small knocks, adding if anything to the naivety and mood of the picture.
