The Very Thought Of You by Jack Vettriano

The Very Thought Of You by Jack Vettriano

 

“The Very Thought of You” is a phrase so many of us can identify with at this time of isolation.  Our thoughts at the moment are often about our loved ones and wishing we could hold them again.

The Picture

Vettriano’s poignant painting vividly portrays the longing and tenderness in this beautiful woman’s gaze,.  “The Very Thought of You” is part of the Contemplation set  of five strikingly individual women, published in 2015.  The other four are entitled “Black on Blonde”, “Baby Bye Bye”, “Edinburgh Afternoon” and “Model in Westwood”.  All Editions are on 300gsm museum etching paper and hand signed and numbered by the Artist.  All come with full Certificate of Authenticity.

Artist’s Proof

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 he is not satisfied with.  When they are happy that it is as close to the original painting as possible, that print is then selected.  Only a few are run from that Proof, hence their rarity.   They are then hand signed and numbered by the Artist  who retains them, to use as gifts or to be released at a later date to the public.  An Artist’s Proof rarely has a run of more than 40 and a Studio Proof numbers only 10, whereas a Limited Edition may have a run of 250 or more.

Although our Gallery is closed during this Coronavirus Lockdown, we are able to dispatch mounted Editions to Customers throughout the U.K.  Please phone our mobile number 07775 735136  to discuss or purchase online.  We hope you keep well.

“Dancer For Money” Background

Vettriano’s dark side is shown again with this image.  The title is inspired by Tina Turner’s “Private Dancer”.  Other inspirations have come from songwriters such as Leonard Cohen and Johnny Cash.

This erotic and sensual original painting was purchased by the famous actor Jack Nicholson in 1996.  It was shown at “Halfway to Paradise” Exhibition in the Museum Gallery, Hong Kong, featuring 32 pictures, including “Night Geometry”.  Nicholson lent the picture to the Kelvingrove Museum for the Vettriano “Retrospective” Exhibition in 2013/14.

“Dancer For Money” was released as a Silkscreen Limited Edition in 2000 as a run of 275 and almost immediately sold out.  The size of that release was 22.5″ x 27″ and it is now only to be found (if at all) on the secondary market. The sale price is now around £3,500.
