Only 75 Limited Editions of this Iconic Picture and seven Artist’s Proofs have been printed
This is the first time this Painting has been published as a Limited Edition
The Missing Man II painting was originally sold by the Auction House Bonhams in April 2015 for £112,900. This stunning image has been highly sought after by Collectors and so Jack’s Gallery was delighted to have acquired Artist’s Proof No 1. This has sold immediately, but we now have two further Premium Limited Editions in stock.
The Missing Man II is an embellished canvas mounted on board and framed in a black frame with gold liner. This frame is identical to the frame used for the original painting and is also the same size measuring 30″ x 24″. Because the image has no glass it has 3 coats of lacquer to ensure a satin finish. As there is no mount, the picture unusually has the number Artist’s signature in the bottom corner in silver. A full Certificate of Authenticity comes with the Edition.
The Missing Man II is a haunting, thought provoking picture as with so many of Jack Vettriano’s artwork. There is a man missing, but who and where is he? Why are these three glamorous people searching for him? And why are they wearing evening dress, standing on a beach? Are they annoyed or concerned? The Vettriano hallmarks are all there, contrasting the black and white clothes against the pale blue dusk of the sky. Also the beach and sea background is adding to the surreal mystery.
