Speculation is mounting over the paintings including Game On which might be featured in the Jack Vettriano exhibition which will be opening in Kirkcaldy next year . Vettriano has stated that his most famous painting The Singing Butler will be part of the exhibition . Sotheby’s auctioneers are helping him track down his best-known paintings, seeking loans from collectors and anonymous buyers.
Vettriano has, somewhat optimistically , offered the show to the National Galleries of Scotland, which has always shunned his work.
It was “mildly short of a disgrace” that NGS had never shown or bought his work for the national collection, he said, adding: “That may be the opportunity for the National Galleries to say, ‘Right, we’ll show this stuff and let the public make their minds up’.”
Vettriano has been on tour in the UK including an appearance at the Aberdeen Music Hall taking questions from up to 800 people. It was something he had never done before, showing the popularity of the so-called “People’s Painter”. Game On was published as a limited Edition Giclee print , Paper: 310 gsm Hahnemuhle mould made paper
