The retro image portrays a young, pert, attractive brunette. Wearing an eye-catching sleeveless polka dot dress, the woman has her hands on her hips and an insolent expression. Her companion is dressed conservatively in slacks, shirt and tie. Leaning against the rail, he is looking into her eyes. He knows she has the upper hand in this relationship and is unsure of her and her feelings. The pale blue and mauve sky suggests it is late afternoon. The beach is empty. Is their relationship empty also? Vettriano, as always, leaves us guessing.
This painting is overflowing with colour and vibrancy. The retro style is redolent of the late 50s period and shows a young couple with the woman in control, rather than so many of his more erotic paintings portraying a darker side to relationships.
Jack’s Gallery in Henley On Thames, has acquired these stunning pictures in both Artist Proofs and Limited Editions in time for the Easter break and to herald the start of Summer. Jack’s Gallery specialises in the iconic artwork of Vettriano and is delighted to be able to exhibit this new release.
