About this title


Over the last few years Jack Vettriano has risen to fame meteorically. Emerging from the unlikely background of the Scottish coalfields, unknown and untutored, he has become Scotland's most successful and controversial contemporary artist. Appearing on posters and cards, mugs and umbrellas, prints of his work outsell van Gogh, Dali and Monet and his paintings have been acquired by celebrities around the world.
Vettriano himself describes his paintings as akin to pulp fiction novel covers and railway posters of the 1950s. His images have an often mysterious narrative and are a gateway to an alluring yet sinister world. Daylight scenes of heady optimism, painted against backdrops of beaches and racetracks, are counterbalanced by more disquieting canvases of complex night-time liaisons in bars, clubs, bedrooms and ballrooms.
Jack Vettriano publishes for the first time over thirty new images, exhibited in his 2004 exhibition, as well as some recently discovered works, plus the best of the paintings previously published in Lovers and Other Strangers and Fallen Angels, also published by Pavilion.

From the Publisher:

Jack Vettriano emerged from the coal fields of Scotland, unknown and untutored, to become Scotland’s most successful contemporary artist. Prints of his work outsell those of Van Gogh, Dali, and Monet, and his paintings have been acquired by celebrities around the world. For its cover piece on Vettriano, BOOKLIST wrote: “Each of his sexy canvases is like a movie still, freezing a moment of seduction or confrontation. Elegant men and women, armed with cigarettes and cocktails, enact ritualized scenarios in which no amount of exposed flesh can inspire genuine intimacy.” This gorgeous monograph presents more than 30 new images, some earlier work never before seen, and a selection of the finest of Vettriano’s previously published paintings.
