History of “Dancer For Money”

The run was immediately sold out and it is now only to be found (if at all) on the secondary market.  Other  Limited Editions were released at same time also with runs of 275.  They included “The Drifter”, “Winter Light and Lavender”, “Beautiful Losers 11” and “The Letter”.  Jack Nicholson kindly loaned his painting to the Kelvingrove  Museum for the Vettriano “Retrospective”Exhibition in 2013/4

“Dancer For Money”  was inspired like many of Vettriano’s artwork, by the Tina Turner song “Private Dancer.  He took other inspirations from songwriters, such as Leonard Cohen  and Johnny Cash.

Jack’s Gallery Collection

In September 2018, another smaller format run  of this image was released, with only 59 Limited Editions and 4 Artist’s Proofs.  As one of the foremost Vettriano specialists in the U.K. Jack’s Gallery has one remaining Artist’s Proof No V/V and one Limited Edition of this run also.  In addition the Gallery stocks many more Vettriano Artist’s and Studio Proofs, and Limited Editions.

This truly stunning picture of a  vibrant and sexy young woman on a motorbike, is set against the backdrop of the Riviera. Her dark jeans and helmet contrast with her thinly strapped white T-shirt. Tanned and wearing dark sunglasses her  gold jewellery contrasts perfectly against her tanned skin.  The breeze is gently fluttering her hair and the bunting.  The powerful motorbike shows off her femininity,  and the whole image is framed against the vivid deep blue Mediterranean.  Although not painted in the 1960s the picture has a retro feel and gives a feeling of the carefree youthfulness and new found independence of a young woman riding a man’s bike.

“Pincer Movement” print by Jack Vettriano

This Erotic Painting formed part of the “Affairs of the Heart” Exhibition in 2004

This Exhibition was held at the Portland Gallery, London from June to July 2004  and was a sell out of all 33 of Vettriano’s Paintings shown. This was Jack’s first Exhibition for four years.  Other Paintings included “Along Came a Spider”

The woman has undone her coat, revealing nothing but black underwear underneath.  Her arms are open and inviting.  The man has her lips held between his fingers  of his right hand, ensuring she is perfectly positioned to kiss him.  The trademark cigarette is held in his left hand with his shirt sleeves and cuffs hanging loose and collar undone.  The background of dark green with the retro yellow lamp add to the atmosphere of the picture, and Vettriano’s touches of the pearl earrings against her black hair as always catch the attention.  The room gives the impression of a hotel bedroom.  Is this an illicit affair?  Are they married?  As always Jack Vettriano leaves us asking questions.

“The Proposal” Is The Latest Vettriano Release at Jack’s Gallery

“The Proposal” by Jack Vettriano – Artist’s Proofs Nos 2 & 3 plus Limited Edition No 8 at Jack’s Gallery

Due to high demand this Latest Release has already sold out from the Publisher in the pre-order period.

“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.  Literature, of course, is full of famous proposals and romance. Jane Eyre and Mr Rochester , Rhett Butler and Scarlett O’Hara, Mr Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet and the most famous lovers of all, Romeo and Juliet.

Jack’s Gallery is delighted to have this latest romantic piece of art from Jack Vettriano.  Please ring our Gallery for further details.

“Another Married Man” – the latest Vettriano release at Jack’s Gallery

Jack’s Gallery has acquired Nos 1 & 2 of 175 Limited Editions of “Another Married Man”

Also highly collectable Nos 3 & 5 of 20 Artist’s Proofs of the latest release from Jack Vettriano

Another Married Man

“Another Married Man” – more Erotic Art from Jack Vettriano

This sultry, provocative painting of “Another Married Man” is very much in keeping with the erotic art Vettriano has been producing in the last few years.  In 2013, after a disastrous love affair, Vettriano painted a homage entitled “A Very Married Woman”.  He has admitted that much of his later works reflects his own life and “twenty five years of sexual misbehaviour”.  Other works show his interest in bondage: “Scarlet Ribbons”, part of his Red Room Collection, and reflections on threesomes with “Beautiful Losers”.  This suggestive piece with the woman wearing nothing but a black basque, stockings and suspenders continues in the same vein.

“Another Married Man” Inspirations

Vettriano has said he cannot paint a woman unless he finds her attractive.  While many of his paintings are inspired by titles lifted from songs written by the likes of Leonard Cohen, he admits he has also been inspired by visits to prostitutes. He is not the first Artist to be so, Manet and Degas were also notorious for their paintings of the ladies of the night. Vettriano often places himself in paintings, but now worries he may be seen as an old pervert.  Though so many of his women appear in underwear, stockings and suspenders, his models are never naked.

Jack Vettriano has huge appeal to both men and women with his erotic paintings. This may be because his images are relatively safe, but edgy – and a little dark.

All Limited Editions and Artist’s Proofs are signed by Jack Vettriano and come with a full Certificate of Authenticity.  Standard Limited Editions are £425. Buy online from our website now – click here.  Please contact our Gallery in Henley On Thames for further details.

Birth Of A Dream by Jack Vettriano

“Birth of a Dream” Limited Edition by Jack Vettriano

“Birth of a Dream” No 150/250 Limited Edition in Silver & Black Frame £850

Birth Of A Dream by Jack Vettriano

 Jack’s Gallery celebrates Lewis Hamilton’s amazing record by showcasing “Birth of a Dream”

Lewis Hamilton’s amazing achievement of qualifying for his 69th Pole Position, in the wet Italian Grand Prix  and then going on to win, is indeed a dream.  A three times Formula One World Champion he has had more race victories than any other British driver in the history of Formula One.  Hamilton is also the only driver to win at least one Grand Prix in every season since his first season in 2007. Born in 1985 the “Birth of a Dream” began at 6 years old when his Father bought him a radio-controlled car.  At the age of  13 he approached McLaren’s team principal Ron Dennis and said “I want to be racing your cars”.  He was signed to McLaren’s young driver support programme in 1998.  The rest is history.

“Birth of a Dream” is part of the famous “Bluebird Collection” by Jack Vettriano

This wonderful picture is part of a set of 7 paintings called “The Bluebird Collection”, commissioned by Sir Terence Conran in 1996 when he opened his Bluebird Gastrodome Restaurant in London.  The Vettriano paintings were inspired by Sir Malcolm Campbell who set his  final World Land Speed Record in 1935.  The painting  of “Birth of a Dream” features the original V-12 Sunbeam which Campbell painted blue and named “Bluebird”.

The original “Bluebird Collection” paintings were auctioned at Sotheby’s in August 2007  and made more than £1 million and a boxed set of 7 signed Limited Editions were produced in 2010 to mark the 75th anniversary of the Land Speed Record.

Jack’s Gallery now has a very rare complete set of Artist Proofs No. 6 of the “Bluebird Collection” containing “Birth of a Dream”, “Bluebird at Bonneville”, “Pendine Beach”, “301.129”, “Bluebird”, “The British are Coming”, “Daytona Diner” and the book entitled “Man’s World”.

Please phone our Henley-on-Thames Gallery for further details.

One Moment In Time by Jack Vettriano

“One Moment in Time” and the Clocks Go Forward

“One Moment in Time” and the Clocks Go Forward for Springtime

“One Moment in Time” and the clocks go forward.  Most of us long for the moment the clocks go forward and the evenings become lighter.  To mark the changing of the hour this weekend, and the beginning of Springtime, Jack’s Gallery is featuring  a poignant picture entitled”One Moment in Time” by Jack Vettriano.

A beautiful brunette stands gazing out of a window, thinking about that one moment in time that has just happened or about to happen.  She is wearing a stunning white evening dress, statement earrings and a row of pearls around her neck, holding her evening bag.  Has she has just come home, or is she waiting for the evening to begin?  Is she angry or sad or just caught up in a memory?  As always with Vettriano we are left to guess.

Jack’s Gallery Celebrates Cheltenham with “On Parade” Vettriano Limited Edition

Cheltenham Week

To mark the beginning of the start of the week Jack’s Gallery is featuring the sexy picture of “On Parade” published in 2008.

Jack’s Gallery knows that Cheltenham week is the most important week of the calendar year for National Hunt racing.  Many will be watching the beautiful and brave horses parading round the ring before each race and making their choices of which ones to back.  Maybe a jockey in red and black silks?

Jack’s Gallery is choosing to celebrate this week by featuring this cheeky picture of “On Parade” by Jack Vettriano.

This image shows a brunette with her hair tied back dressed in a masculine scarlet guardsman’s jacket and a pair of black stockings.  Only black stockings.  She is leaning forward into a room.  Is it an Hotel room? Is it her lover’s bedroom.  Does the jacket belong to him?

As always with Vettriano’s paintings we are left to question and use our own imagination.
