Jack Vettriano painting of Zara Phillips goes on sale at auction

Jack Vettriano’s painting of Zara Phillips for Sports relief with her reclining on a Union flag is up for auction. It is predicted to defy the credit crunch and fetch a stunning £1 million.
“We hope people will start bidding from £100,000,” says a spokesman for Bonhams, which is conducting the auction in aid of Sport Relief. “It’s a very rare piece and the only one of a young royal around that is up for auction. We would love it to hit the million mark and certainly think it is a possibility.”
“I was shaking and she had to calm me down before we started,” says Vettriano. “It was always going to be a more natural rather than a formal portrait.”
The Fife-born artist’s paintings now sell at high prices. Whether this work can beat his previous record of £744,800, for the The Singing Butler in 2004 remains to be seen.

Beautiful Dreamer drawing goes for auction


Jack Vettriano has donated a drawing of Beautiful Dreamer to an auction to raise funds for a Welsh art gallery under threat of closure . Oriel Plas Glyn-y-Weddw gallery in Pwllheli, North Wales.The drawing on an A6 card, shows the image of a woman standing at the window in Vettriano’s London studio. It is the first drawing he has ever submitted for public display.

“Beautiful Dreamer” will be auctioned, along with 11 other works , in an effort to raise enough money to save the gallery – one of the oldest in Wales – from closure. It will feature in the auction this Saturday alongside works from selected artists including Wrexham-born Keith Bowen, Gareth Parry, William Selwyn and Welsh concert singer Bryn Terfel.

The gallery’s director, Gwyn Jones, revealed that significant attention has already been paid to Vettriano’s piece. According to the BBC, he said: “We’ve already had substantial interest with people wanting to place phone bids. The reserve is £5,000 and we’re hoping it will make £10,000.”

Banksy unmasked

banksy toxic mary
The identity of anti-establishment artist Banksy has been a closely guarded secret until now, but new evidence from a Sunday newspaper investigation suggests that he is in fact Robin Gunningham, 34, a former pupil at the £9,240-a-year Bristol Cathedral School.

Banksy rose to fame by using stencils to paint illegal grafitti images on public walls, often with a topical political message. His images have become so popular that some councils and businesses have opted to protect his creations rather than wash them off.
