Jack Vettriano and Sir Jackie Stewart collaborate on Monaco painting

A unique collaboration has taken place between Jack Vettriano and Sir Jackie Stewart . It took place when Sir Jackie, who is an art collector and a fan of Mr Vettriano’s work, contacted Vettriano last year .

They met up and eventually Mr Vettriano came up with an idea for three paintings after watching the Roman Polanski film about the 1971 Grand Prix called Weekend of a Champion and studying other photographs of the era.

Mr Vettriano, who divides his time between home in Nice, London and Scotland, said: “There’s a sense of romance in risk and danger, which is very compelling, and researching idea for my painting made me realise just how different Formula 1 was in Jackie’s era.

“I was astonished to be reminded that the cars were, as Jackie puts it, ‘petrol tanks on wheels’ and it really touched me to see just how involved the wives and girlfriends were in the whole process of the race.
