The Edinburgh-born impressionist is best known for his meticulous style of painting, and was obsessed with creating the perfect still life.
Seven paintings by the Fife-born artist Jack Vettriano also sold for an amazing Â£358,000. Many of the paintings had never been seen in public before, adding to the excitement of the occasion.
The paintings were originally due to be auctioned at a Scottish location but the sale was moved to London to cope with the anticipated demand from abroad.
Many of the lots come from the stunning collection of art collector Anthony Rampton who loved Scotland and spent a lot of time on the island of Arran.
Vettrianoâ€™s Dance Me To The End Of Love attracted the most interest of his work selling for Â£121,250.
