Two early paintings by the artist Jack Vettriano have gone under the hammer in Edinburgh for almost Â£10,000. The paintings, which were sold to a private collection in Scotland, were completed by the artist in the 1980s. Vettriano recently brushed aside claims he had copied some of his most famous paintings from an art manual. The works sold on Saturday – Three Girls Bathing in the Sea and Boy Boating – were completed by the artist nearly 20 years ago when he preferred to be known by his father’s name, Hoggan.
