Glamorous, beautiful and powerfully sexual, the women featured in these Jack Vettriano signed prints are magnificent examples of the artist's work. Vettriano's paintings are recognisable for exposing a world that is seemingly based in the 30's and 40's, of men with classically masculine silhouettes and curvaceous women in form-fitting fashions.
Although there are many nostalgic touches, Jack Vettriano's imagery often carries a timeless style too. Scenes featuring smartly dressed couples could equally be snapshots from the first half of the 20th century or a formal event last week. Alongside this, the backgrounds seem to cross boundaries of time - from beaches, cafes, hotel rooms and windows.
The Jack Vettriano limited edition prints in our collection are magnificent examples of Vettriano's abilities as a storyteller. He seems to capture a moment in time, sometimes romantic, sometimes erotic or even with a touch of melancholy. Artworks such as 'Baby, Bye Bye' and 'Beautiful Dreamer' feature women in contemplative moods near windows. Together with the titles, these pose questions to the viewer about the who the women are and what has just occured to them before this moment was almost cinematically captured. You begin to build a story in your mind from the clues in the artwork and interpret them in your own way.
Jack is responsible for one of the most famous and successful artworks in the UK, called The Singing Butler. It sells more posters, greetings cards and postcards than any print by any artist in the UK, and retains that despite being painted back in 1992. It's an oil on canvas, depicting a couple dancing on a beach in Fife, accompanied by a butler and a maid who are struggling to hold umbrellas against strong winds. It is not a favourite with art critics, who dislike Vettriano's 'inconsistent' lighting in the artwork, but this striking painting captured the hearts of the public and remains a strong favourite. The original was sold in 2004 for around £744,000.
About Jack Vettriano
Jack Vettriano's story into art is rather simple; following his 21st birthday, where his girlfriend gave him a set of watercolour paints, and so he spent much of his time teaching himself to paint. When he was 38, he submitted two paintings to the Royal Scottish Academy's exhibition, and both were accepted and sold on the same day. After that, he entered the summer exhibition at London's Royal Academy and the enthusiastic response launched his new life as an artist.
Jack Vettriano was awarded an OBE in 2004 for his services to the Visual Arts, has held several solo exhibitions around the world including Hong Kong, New York, London and Edinburgh as well as being the subject of documentaries. Many have commissioned special artworks from Vettriano such as the Yacht Club of Monaco and he has accumulated several famous collectors of his paintings. More recently Jack Vettriano held a retrospective exhibition in Glasgow that looked back at 20 years of is artistic career and was a hugely popular event with record breaking numbers of visitors at the time.
