Jack Vettriano Summer Collection

These are just some of the wonderful images from our Jack Vettriano Summer Collection. As one of the premier UK galleries specialising in the work of this very popular Artist, we are delighted to be able to show a Summer Collection of his work. We also have many more of his romantic images, filled with light. Plus we stock many of his more recent artworks, which show his darker and more erotic side.

History of these Paintings

 “Mad Dogs” and “The Picnic Party” are some of Vettriano’s earliest works, the former in 1991 and the latter in 1992. Using the medium of oil on canvas, he shows his brilliant command of using light to bring these paintings to life.

“The Days of Wine & Roses” was painted for the Kirkcaldy Art Museum, where 40 new paintings were exhibited. The Exhibition was held  in 2010 and was fittingly entitled “The Days of Wine & Roses”.

“Scorched” was originally painted for the Retrospective Exhibition in 2013 and published as a Limited Edition print at the same time.

“The Waltzers” is the most recent painting, going on sale at Bonhams in March 2015.  The painting was estimated to fetch between £200,000 and £300,000.

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.
