Vettriano

I just love it - I can't afford to own it, but this auction for a Jack Vettriano original -

JACK VETTRIANO- 'THE WHITE BASQUE'- 1994, OIL on CANVAS

Stunning, sexy, and utterly classic - early mature-period Jack Vettriano from 1994. Jack's evocative style at its best.... the cinematic narrative...the eternal sexual tension between men and women.

has me drooling! The current owner bought the Vettriano from an art gallery in Dunkeld, Perthshire when Vettriano was beginning to come to public notice. I am already jealous of the new owner of this amazing pic - the auction has several days yet to run, but the picture could be yours for 32,000 - and could be an amazing investment.

Vettriano's Biography states:

Born in Fife, Scotland in 1951, Jack Vettriano left school at sixteen to become a mining engineer. For his twenty-first birthday, a girlfriend gave him a set of watercolour paints and, from then on, he spent much of his spare time teaching himself to paint.

In 1989, he submitted two paintings to the Royal Scottish Academy's annual exhibition; both were accepted and sold on the first day. The following year, an equally enthusiastic reaction greeted the three paintings, which he entered for the prestigious Summer Exhibition at London's Royal Academy and his new life as an artist began from that point on.

Over the last twenty years, interest in Vettriano's work has grown consistently. There have been sell-out solo exhibitions in Edinburgh, London, Hong Kong and New York.

Although he is a controversial figure, Vettriano is still favoured by the establishment - his portrait of Zara Phillips, daughter of HRH The Princess Royal, was commissioned for a charity auction in aid of Sport Relief. ..
