New Jack Vettriano exhibition of Scottish prints

A NEW Scottish exhibition showcasing a collection of original works by renowned artist Jack Vettriano has opened in Banff .
Some of the Fife-born artist’s well-known pieces will feature alongside a series of limited edition prints from throughout his career, including some of his earlier works.
Curated by gallery owner and collector, Mark Gask, the exhibition entitled ‘Jack Vettriano – a Scottish Artist’ will be held in Duff House, in Banff.

Vettriano has published limited edition prints throughout his career including Night in the City and  His Favourite Girl .

It is open to the public for 10 weeks and is included within the admission price to the House.
Vettriano, who is from Methil in Fife, is entirely self-taught.
More than 132,502 people attended the first major retrospective of the artist’s work held Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Art Gallery – a record for the museum.

Lorna Ewan from Historic Scotland said: “With his work being so famous in reproduction, I’m sure people will enjoy this opportunity to view a small sample of his work in the flesh.
“Drawn from a private collection, this could be the first time for many to see these originals and we are expecting it to be popular with visitors and fans alike.”
Mark Gask, of Gallery i, who loaned the paintings added: “Duff House is the perfect setting for this more intimate style exhibition, featuring a number of original art Scottish prints by one of Scotland’s most famous contemporary artists.
“The exhibition will also see one of the originals – Future World – available to purchase, as are all of the Vettriano limited edition prints.”

The Singing Butler stars at Vettriano retrospective in Glasgow

The Singing Butler , Vettriano’s iconic painting , has taken a starring role at Vettriano’s retrospective at the Kelvingrove Art gallery in Glasgow. Over 100 of his paintings are featured in the exhibition which has filled the gallery with the curious and devoted.

Kelvingrove Art Gallery in Glasgow

The art gallery itself is almost full to bursting point . There are queues to see certain pictures and there is a queue at the till in the exhibition shop. The postcard rack is emptying fast  and the limited edition prints are being snapped up.

Jack Vettriano has cooperated with other artists and bands in Scotland , most notable the Scottish band St Jude’s Infirmary . He  starred in the video of the band’s song ‘Goodbye Jack Vettriano’ which was recorded yesterday on the beach at Edinburgh. The band faithfully recreated the scene of Vettriano’s most famous image of the Singing Butler

They only intended to ask his permission to recreate some of his paintings in the shoot, but they were stunned when the elusive artist volunteered to feature in the video.
He made the offer after the band presented him with a copy of the song during a hastily arranged meeting at Edinburgh Airport last Sunday.
Drummer Mark Francis, 31, said: “He rang us up later to tell us he loved the track and also said that he would appear in the music show video. Mr Vettriano then called us later in the week to tell us that he has talked Ian Rankin into getting involved as well.
“We’re delighted that they are both coming to Porty beach. Jack wants to have ‘love’ tattooed on his knuckles – just like in the lyrics of our song.” Guitarist and cellist Ashley Campbell, 28, added: “It’s all just snowballed from when we met him at the weekend. “He had heard of our collaboration with Ian, and we put them in touch with each other for what will be a rather surreal and exciting day for us. “Jack’s agreed to recreate some of the poses from his paintings and he’s going to get Ian to do the same. “The finished video should look great. “Jack’s annoyed they didn’t take us all to Leven beach, which is the inspiration for the beaches in his paintings. I’m sure the Edinburgh Riviera will do just as nicely though.”

Peploe’s Coffee Pot smashes Vettriano’s record for Scottish art

A painting Still Life with Coffee Pot has broken the record price for Scottish art.
Scottish Colourist Samuel John Peploe’s painting fetched nearly £1 million, breaking the record set seven years ago by Jack Vettriano with his famous The Singing Butler.
The painting was sold yesterday to a UK private collector at Christie’s in London.
The auctioneer’s British and Scottish pictures expert Andre Zlattinger said: “It’s a masterpiece by him, a fabulous picture, and a great result.”

Christie’s British and Scottish pictures expert Andre Zlattinger said: “It’s a masterpiece by him, a fabulous picture, and a great result.”
The price for the 1905 painting, including the buyer’s premium, was £937,250. The previous record for a work by Peploe was £623,650 for Tulips, sold by Sotheby’s in London last year. The Peploe was painted in 1905 while he was still under the influence of Manet and before he became obsessed with bright colour, was a still life with silver coffee pot, which sold for a record £937,250 to art adviser Susannah Pollen. Record prices for L S Lowry and Stanley Spencer claimed the headlines of last week’s 20th-century British Art auctions in London as Christie’s posted the highest ever total for a sale in that category – £17.9 million. A collector bought LS Lowry’s The Football Match (1947) for £5.6 million

Seven Jack Vettriano paintings go to auction next month .Touted as the most important collection of Vettrianos seen at auction, the series was commissioned by the restaurateur Sir Terence Conran for the Bluebird, on the King’s Road in Chelsea in 1997. Vettriano said yesterday: “I was thrilled when Sir Terence Conran approached me with the project. The brief was pretty clear: ‘I know you have to paint cars, but try to make them sexy’. “I did a lot of research on the subject and spent six weeks in my studio producing the works – that’s slow for me. I then waited for the dreaded call. He loved them.” Jack Vettriano paintings
