History of “Dancer For Money”

First shown in the “Halfway to Paradise” Exhibition in 1996, “Dancer For Money” was purchased by Actor Jack Nicholson.  It was released as a Silkscreen Limited Edition with a 275 run in 2000. 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. We also stock a huge range of  Open Prints of his  Artwork.

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 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.

“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”

“Pincer Movement” was sold to a private bidder. It was then published in 2006 with an edition run of 495 plus 50 Artist’s Proofs and belongs to the erotic and dark collection of Jack Vettriano’s Artwork.

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.

Scarlet Ribbons by Jack Vettriano

“Scarlet Ribbons” Studio Proof by Jack Vettriano – Special Offer at Jack’s Gallery

“Scarlet Ribbons” by Jack Vettriano

A Special Offer for Christmas from Jack’s Gallery – Rare Studio Proof No 8/10 for only £786

Part of the Sold Out “Red Room” Collection

One only now remaining

Scarlet Ribbons by Jack Vettriano

“Scarlet Ribbons” by Jack Vettriano

“Scarlet Ribbons” is part of one of the most erotic series of paintings by Jack Vettriano called “The Red Room”

“The Red Room” Collection takes it’s name from the record breaking “Retrospective” Exhibition held in the Kelvingrove Art Gallery. When Vettriano decided to hang his collection for the exhibition in 2014, he requested that his area was painted a deep red, with lighting kept to a minimum.  He wanted to enhance the erotically charged atmosphere of the paintings. In this image he has included a third party as a voyeur, to add even more sexual chemistry.  He has used this technique with many of his other ‘darker’ paintings, including “Beautiful Losers” and “The Game of Life” and even with the more romantic images, like “Dancer in Emerald” and “The Picnic Party”.

“Scarlet Ribbons” shows a woman, head bent in submission. Her basque is tied by ribbons, the room is painted scarlet and is lit by dim candlelight.  The man appears to be discussing something with the hard faced woman standing, dressed in scarlet and black, sheer fingerless gloves.  Are they discussing the price of the woman in the basque?  Is he dissatisfied with her performance?  Is he trying to stop the woman prostituting herself? As always Vettriano will have more questions than answers.

This Studio Proof is now Sold Out but Jack’s Gallery has one remaining, number 8 of 10. Call the Gallery on 01491 571387 or Jack Free’s mobile on 07775 735136 to reserve this highly collectable, erotic picture.  Alternatively you can buy it online.  Maybe wrap it in scarlet ribbons for the person in your life this Christmas?

Studio Proofs

These Editions are only produced in a run of 10 – hence their exclusivity.

With Jack Vettriano many of his paintings are never issued as Studio Proofs. Collectors therefore enjoy the rarity of a low numbered Special Edition.

These special Proofs are given as gifts to the Artist or held by the Publisher to be released at a later date. Because of their rarity they tend to increase in value and so normally hold a higher value than a Limited Edition.

Artist’s Proofs

The amount of Artist’s Proofs are normally a small percentage of the Limited Edition run.  The Artist will inspect the first few images that come off the run. He will then work on the printed image to ensure the colour and the quality of the picture.  Once he is happy that the print is as close to the original painting as possible, the Limited Edition Prints are run.  When the Artist is finally satisfied, he retains the first few prints to give away or sell at a future date.  Normally 10% of the print run is retained. Numbering is often hand written in a Roman Numeral Format.

Studio and Artists Proofs at Jack’s Gallery

Situated in the beautiful Thames river town of Henley On Thames, Jack’s Gallery is one of the foremost UK Galleries specialising in Jack Vettriano  Artwork. In particular the Gallery holds a large selection of Studio and Artist’s Proofs.

“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.
