Jack Vettriano has complained about the criticism he has received despite being one of the most famous artists in the world. “I wouldn’t mind so much if most of the criticism criticised the work but it’s not the work they criticise. There’s a personal aspect to it as well.” The 55-year-old Vettriano is now based in Nice, France, added: “We all have difficulties as human beings. It’s very difficult to watch somebody get success when you haven’t had a hand in it. For me to come through the back door and suddenly be Scotland’s most famous artist – it must be difficult for them to take.”
