Association "La maison de Fred Yates"

Welcome to the La maison de Fred Yates site. 

 

If you've found us, you most probably already know a little about Fred Yates. 

 

Our aim  is to promote his life and work.

 

We aim to have a Fred Yates Museum and Gallery  here in France.

 

The house pictured was Fred's home in the Haute-Vienne 87, France.   He purchased the house in a pretty little village called Rancon.  The house has since been  preserved as a museum. 

 

The house, known as the Forge by Fred, is still as the day he left it in 2008.

 

This site will be constantly evolving as we discover more and more about Fred, with your help.

 

We hope to start a blog to include tales of Fred from his friends, a link to the Fred Yates museum, gallery and art studio.  Fred will also hopefully be highlighted on GéoCulture, le Limousin vu par les artistes.  These extras will all take time to establish, so for now........take a look around the curious world of Fredrick Joseph Yates 1922 - 2008. 

 

We hope you enjoy the journey with us................
