Jack Vettriano “Betrayal – First Kiss” – The Latest Release

Mounted Artist’s Proof 3/10 – Plus  Limited Edition No 1/100

Both of these Editions are arriving this week in Jack’s Gallery

Betrayal - First Kiss

Image size 15.25″ x 1.3″; Mounted size 24″ x 21″

This is the second of Vettriano’s “Betrayal” Series of three paintings and already sold out from the Publisher.

“Contemplation of Betrayal” was the first and was published in February this year.  The third painting in the series is entitled “No Turning Back”.  We believe that Vettriano fans will be delighted to acquire the complete collection.

Background to “Betrayal – First Kiss”

The medium of the original Paintings was oil on canvas and were 24″ x 20″ in size.  They were first shown at the International Art and Design Fair New York in September 2001. In  2013 they featured in the major Retrospective Exhibition at the Kelvingrove Art Museum in Glasgow.  This Exhibition was held to mark 20 years of Vettriano’s career

“Betrayal – First Kiss” portrays the next step forward for the couple.  They appear to be in an Hotel corridor and the woman is dressed for an evening out. She has put her hair up and is wearing a stunning dress with matching earrings.  The man is immaculately dressed and while holding her close, it is obvious he has been longing for this first kiss.

In Thoughts Of You by Jack Vettriano

Jack Vettriano’s Artist’s Proofs

Jack Vettriano’s Artist’s Proofs are highly sort after by Collectors.  During the print making process the Artist makes any alterations to the image and when completely satisfied that it is as close to the original painting as possible, selects the print.  Only a very few in number are selected.  They are then hand numbered and hand signed by the artist and he/she retains these, to use as gifts or to be released at a later date in the future.  A Limited Edition may have a run of 250 or more, whereas an Artist’s Proof is rarely more than 40 and a Studio Proof numbers only 10.  Hence their rarity and appeal as there are so few of them.

“The Very Thought of You”

This poignant picture is part of the Contemplation set of 5 pictures of striking individual women painted by Vettriano  and published in 2015 as a run of 250 Limited Editions and 25 Artist’s Proofs.  Jack’s Gallery has a set of 3 of this series – all No 1/25.  As well as  the beautiful “The Very Thought of You” there is also “Edinburgh Afternoon” and “Model in Westwood”. Jack’s Gallery has this unique set for sale at £4,500.

“In Thoughts of You”

This dreamy picture was first shown in 1997 at the Small Paintings and Studies Exhibition.  It was painted in the Georgian townhouse in Edinburgh where Vettriano lived and worked throughout the 1990s.  The  image has been released in both large and small format.  The Artist’s Proofs of this Edition are a run of 40 of each.  Large Format is priced at £750 from Jack’s Gallery.

Jack’s Gallery has Artist’s Proofs and a Limited Edition in stock

“La Fille a la Moto” by Jack Vettriano

This beautiful painting was first shown at the at the Love Devotion and Surrender Exhibition in 2006.

The exhibition was the tenth and final exhibition by Vettriano at The Portland Gallery.

Of the twenty-four paintings that were featured, ALL were sold to private collectors prior to the opening, but six of the paintings had Limited Editions also available.

“La Fille a la Moto” was painted in Nice

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.

Jack’s Gallery has acquired  2 Artist’s Proofs, including the highly collectable No 1 of 20, plus a Limited Edition of this wonderful picture.  Call us for more details.
