Sotheby’s Scottish Art auction takes place in London on Wednesday, September 30, 2009 and it will bring to the market more than 150 works from many of the leading names in the field of predominantly 20th Century Scottish Art. The Scottish Colourists will feature strongly, as will Anne Redpath, Joan Eardley, Peter Howson and Jack Vettriano and the sale is estimated to bring in the region of £4 million. All of the sale’s offerings will be exhibited at Edinburgh’s Mansfield Traquair between Tuesday, September 15 and Thursday, September 17 and this exhibition is open to the public. Jack Vettriano will be represented by some 15 works, the most valuable of which is Bathers, which was exhibited at The Solstice Gallery in Edinburgh in August 1991 in the very same exhibition as two of the artist’s most iconic images, The Singing Butler and Mad Dogs. Bathers dates to the most significant period of Vettriano’s career and is expected to fetch £100,000-150,000. Pincer Movement , which has been published as a limited edition print , is also for sale. Photogold has supplied Jack Vettriano prints online since 1998. Guardian art reviews
