It’s not just pictures like The Singing Butler that Jack Vettriano paints, tho’ this painting earns him thousands in royalties each year. He paints intimate situations which can evoke powerful emotions both towards the subject of the painting but also towards the painting itself. Self-taught and disparaged by many critics Jack Vettriano has produced an enormous, and to a large extent uncatalogued series of paintings. Most are privately owned and he has not seen many of the paintings in the current exhibition at the Kelvingrove Museum in Glasgow for many years.
His paintings and prints are selling like hot cakes!
