Jack Vettriano's images are neo-realist—real in the sense that he portrays recognizeable people in believeable situations, yet heightened to that level of dramatic or romantic intensity which fuelled the fiction of the Hollywood dream factory. Alongside 44 Vettriano paintings are stories, poems, dialogue from plays, and other fine examples of Scottish writing. W. Gordon Smith has woven an anthology of new and old writing around the painter's images, extending the lives of his characters beyond their frozen moments on canvas.

About the Author:

Jack Vettriano is entirely self-taught. A Scotsman of Italian descent, he left school at sixteen to become a mining engineer working down the Fife coalfields. 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. His first solo exhibition in Edinburgh was a sell-out and since then he has had solo exhibitions in London, Hong Kong and New York. Over the last twenty years, interest in Vettriano's work has grown consistently. Vettriano's best known painting, The Singing Butler, was sold at Sotheby's for close to GBP750,000. He was awarded an OBE for Services to the Visual Arts. In 2013, a major twenty year Retrospective exhibition of Vettriano's work was staged at Kelvingrove art Gallery and Musuem in Glasgow. He lives in Edinburgh.
