The Daily Telegraph had an interesting interview with Jack Vettriano in it yesterday .Vettriano still seems bothered about his reputation as a serious artist. He says “Unfortunately, people in this country equate popularity with trash”.Obviously there is no direct correlation between quality and popularity in art , music or any field of popular culture. He says he paints in a ” raunchy style – which he describes as “a cross between old railway posters and the covers of pulp fiction novels” If you have seen the pictures he published last year- Game On, Night and the City, and 4 other images – you would know exactly what he means.Even older images like Cocktails and Broken Hearts have a smouldering eroticism albeit a whole lot subtler than his recent images Cocktails and Broken Hearts
