“The Proposal” belongs to the Romantic Artwork of Jack Vettriano
“The Proposal” is the latest release by the publishers of Vettriano’s work and is simply beautiful. With a retro feel, it shows a couple intertwined and deeply in love. The man is protecting his beloved from the sun with his umbrella and he has a look of complete adoration on his face. The way Vettriano uses the light of the sky as a background to the pale yellows of the sands and the woman’s summer dress is outstanding. This painting has so many of the “romantic” trademarks of his earlier works. The figures set against railings with the sea, sky and sand in the background. “Anniversary Waltz”, “Bad Boy, Good Girl” “Summertime Blues” “The Big Tease” “The Game of Life”and “Blue Blue” all feature these trademarks. Two of Vettriano’s most famous paintings, “The Singing Butler” and “Mad Dogs”, also feature backgrounds with the same romantic theme, including the umbrellas but without the railings.
“The Proposal” is in good company artistically with other Famous Proposals
Many, many Artists are renowned for portraying romance and proposals in their works. “The Kiss” by Gustav Klimt, “The Lovers” by Rene Magritte, “Chez le Pere Lathuille” by Edouard Manet, “In Bed The Kiss” by Toulouse-Lautrec, are all so well-known across the world. There are also the many paintings by father and son artists Charles and Fredrick Soulacroix, featuring “The Proposal”, “Enchantee” “The Marriage Proposal” and “Flirtation” as some of their most famous works.
