Jack Vettriano: Studio Life: An Intimate Portrait of the Painter (illustrated edition)
Saving £9.00 (36%)
Click image to zoom
Jack is one of the UK's most popular, and yet most controversial, contemporary artists. His pictures sell for a record amount of money, the paintings in his exhibitions are always sold out before the opening and 'The Singing Butler' made history for being the most expensive painting by a Scottish living artist ever to be sold at auction. (And surely the same painting is one of the world's most replicated fine art images?) Here, for the first time, we get up close and personal with Jack in the studio. We see how he works in his studios in Scotland, London and Nice and we see how these locations influence his paintings. The book also includes brand new paintings never before seen. We analyse Jack's own cultural influences and the influences his work has come to have on popular culture in turn. With outstanding and revealing photography by Jillian Edelstein and a foreword from friend and fellow son of Fife, author Ian Rankin, this is a book to delight Jack Vettriano's fans.

Why not be the first to write one?
Jack Vettriano left school at 15 to become a mining engineer. For his 21st 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. Over the last 20 years, interest in Vettriano's work has grown consistently and he has had sell-out solo exhibitions in Edinburgh, London, Hong Kong and New York. In 2004, his best known painting, The Singing Butler was sold for close to GBP750,000 and he was awarded an OBE for Services to the Visual Arts. Vettriano divides his time between Fife, London and Nice.
