Jack Vettriano auction at Bonhams

Valentine Rose print by Jack Vettriano

Auctioneer Bonhams have announced a unique auction of  a collection of paintings by Jack Vettriano .

It is believed the paintings could fetch up to £1.2m when they are sold at auction in Edinburgh.

The 12 paintings in the sale have never appeared at auction before. They will go under the hammer at Bonhams on 31 March for an estimated £800,000 to £1.2m.

The paintings, which are being sold by an anonymous collector, offer a cross-section of themes that have informed the artist’s work for many years.

Chris Brickley, Bonhams’ head of Scottish art, said: “This is one of the most comprehensive collections of Vettriano’s work ever assembled, covering all the major periods of the artist’s career and giving a vivid insight into his artistic development.

“This is the most important collection of Jack Vettriano’s work to appear at auction for the past 10 years.

“It spans the period when the artist was producing some of his most recognisable and best-loved images.

“Several of the paintings, for example Waltzers and Missing Man II, will be familiar from books about Vettriano and the very popular cards and posters which have been made from his work.”

Best-selling

Waltzers, estimated at £200-300,000, shows couples dancing under a night sky while The Road to Nowhere, estimated at £150-200,000, and Missing Man II, which could fetch up to £150,000, show figures on beaches.

Not all the works are dated but the earliest one that is dated is 1992 and the latest 2004.

Jack Vettriano says he paints in a ” raunchy style – which he describes as “a cross between old railway posters and the covers of pulp fiction novels” If you have seen the pictures he published in the past – Game On, Night and the City, and 4 other images – you would know exactly what he means.Even older images like Cocktails and Broken Hearts have a smouldering eroticism albeit a whole lot subtler than his recent images Cocktails and Broken Hearts

Jack Vettriano exhibition set to make new attendance record

the singing butler-large format , jack vettriano

Jack Vettriano’s retrospective exhibition at Kelvin­grove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow has proved a massive hit with his fans who have travelled from all over the UK to view the exhibition . So it will be little surprise to them that the retrospective looks likely to set a new record for attendance. So far over 90,000 visitors have attended the exhibition .
The Singing Butler – small format signed print £280 , free UK delivery

The previous record was set by the Glasgow Boys show in 2010, which attracted more than 120,000 visitors as well as wide critical acclaim.
Exceptional demand for the show led to the museum, for the first time since 2006, opening late for one night in November.

The show closes on February 23 but organisers are hoping that strong attendance figures will continue into next month as the exhibition draws to a close.

Vettriano’s best selling print the Singing Butler  features in the show . The artist has expressed his gratitude to Glasgow for providing the stage for the major retrospective.

It has featured more than 100 of the artist’s paintings, including some of his best known images, such as The Singing Butler, Dance Me To The End of Love and The Weight. The Singing Butler and  Dance Me To The End of Love  have recently been released as signed limited edition prints .

A spokesman for Glasgow Life said: “The response to the Jack ­Vettriano retrospective has been outstanding, with tens of thousands of visitors flocking to Kelvingrove. Whether it breaks the attendance record will be a close-run thing. But we expect a surge in numbers when visitors realise they have just a few more weeks before the exhibition closes.”

Vettriano’s commercial success has not been matched critical acclaim , but he said that he expected it to be successful.

He said: “I doubt many critics have ever been to an exhibition of mine, to tell you the truth but I think they will go to this, because it is national, and I think I will get a lot of flak. But what I hope happens is that we break attendance records, and I don’t see why we can’t.”
