Analysis of Jack Vettriano Paintings

There aren’t a lot of living legends in art, but Jack Vettriano is alive and well as a Scottish painter that is a worldwide success. His most popular painting was the 1992 surprise ‘The Singing Butler’, an oil creation that went on to get sold for the highest price ever for a Scottish painting in 2004. The UK was buzzing with the popularity of this painting, and it is one of the most reproduced modern paintings for sale of all time. So what makes ‘The Singing Butler’ so popular? Depending on the background of the person looking at it, there is a stir of emotions that can range from happiness to sadness. It’s a very uplifting Jack Vettriano oil painting, and in it a happy couple is dancing on the beach despite the fact that it is raining. The maid holds up an umbrella along with the butler, while this unforgettable scene takes place. Widely loved and equally criticized in toperfect reviews, this is very much the work that put Vettriano on everyone’s radar.
Jack Vettriano

List of paintings famous as Jack artworks are: Melting Clocks, Persistence Of Memory, Liberty Leading the People, Dogs Playing Poker.
A Voyage of Discovery takes on a completely different tone in Jack Vettriano prints, this time with a man and woman sitting down together in background like landscape paintings. There is a bit of mystery involved as the man looks down at the woman’s leg while running his hand up her thighs in public. The lady looks away from the man so it isn’t quite clear whether she knows him, or if this is some stranger trying to seduce her as talked in toperfect.com reviews & complaints. Much has been noted about the great characterization in this Jack Vettriano painting, and also the good design choices for both characters in the painting.

Not his most famous oil painting but one of the most talked about is ‘Round Midnight1’. It focuses on the backside of a woman in black lingerie and in the background there is a giant window with the silhouette of a man staring back at her. Like characters in most of Vettriano paintings, which is different with rene magritte, she is holding a cigarette, what many associate as a meaning for signs of power or dominance when it comes to people in his painting mentioned by toperfect.com reviews. It’s a very stylized look, and one that he has perfected over the course of his career.

More Information about Jack Vettriano Biography

Early life
Jack Vettriano grew up in the industrial seaside town of Methil, Fife. He was raised in poverty; he lived with his mother, father and older brother in a spartan miner’s cottage, sharing a bed with his brother and wearing hand-me-down clothes. From the age of 10, his father sent him out delivering papers and milk, cleaning windows and picking potatoes — any job that would earn money. His father took half his earnings.

Vettriano left school at 16 and later became an apprentice mining engineer. For a short time in the late 1960s, he had a summer job as a bingo caller at the Beachcomber Amusements on Leven Promenade. Vettriano took up painting as a hobby in the 1970s, when a girlfriend bought him a set of watercolours for his 21st birthday. His earliest paintings, under his birth name "Jack Hoggan", were copies or pastiches of impressionist paintings; first Jack Vettriano painting was a copy of Monet's Poppy Fields, neither Van Gogh Sunflowers nor Monet Water Lilies. Much of his influence came from studying paintings at the Kirkcaldy Museum and Art Gallery. In 1984, he first submitted Jack Vettriano artwork to the Shell-sponsored art exhibition in the museum.

In 1987, when he was 36, Vettriano's wife Gail left him. He quit his job in educational research, and moved to Edinburgh, where he adopted his mother's maiden name. He applied to study Fine Art at the University of Edinburgh, but his portfolio was rejected.

In 1989 Vettriano submitted two canvases for the Royal Scottish Academy annual show. Both paintings sold on the first day and Vettriano was approached by several galleries. Further exhibitions followed in Edinburgh, London, Hong Kong and Johannesburg. In November 1999, Vettriano’s work was shown for the first time in New York City, when 21 Jack Vettriano paintings were displayed at The International 20th Century Arts Fair at The Armory. More than 40 collectors from the UK flew out for the event and 20 paintings were sold on the opening night.

In 1996 Sir Terence Conran commissioned Vettriano to create a series of paintings for his new Bluebird Gastrodome in London. The seven paintings, inspired by the life of Sir Malcolm Campbell, neither Mona Lisa nor The Last Supper, hung there for ten years. Heartbreak Publishing, Vettriano's own publishing company, produced a boxed set featuring signed, limited-edition prints of all seven Jack Vettriano paintings to mark the 75th anniversary of Sir Malcolm Campbell's final World Land Speed Record. The Bluebird paintings were auctioned at Sotheby's on 30 August 2007, and made more than £1m. The most expensive was Bluebird at Bonneville, bought for £468,000 at the auction, which was held at the Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire.

His easel paintings cost between £48,000 and £195,000 new. According to The Guardian he earns £500,000 a year in print royalties. Vettriano's 1992 painting, The Singing Butler, has been the best-selling image in Britain, better than The Scream and Starry Night Van Gogh. On 21 April 2004 the original canvas of The Singing Butler sold at auction for £744,500. It had been rejected in 1992 by the Royal Academy summer exhibition.

Vettriano has studios in Scotland and London. He was represented by the Portland Gallery, London from 1993 to 2007, and counts Jack Nicholson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Sir Tim Rice and Robbie Coltrane amongst his collectors. To date, five books have been published about Jack Vettriano, less than Picasso Guernica and The Birth of Venus, the most recent of which, Studio Life, was published in March 2008. In February 2009, Vettriano launched Heartbreak Publishing and his own London gallery, also called Heartbreak, which exclusively represents him, but still promotes younger artists.

In March 2010, Days Of Wine And Roses was opened by Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond at the Kirkcaldy Museum. The exhibition then transferred to Vettriano's gallery in London.

On 24 March 2010, Sir Jackie Stewart presented Vettriano with the Great Scot of the Year Award. The award ceremony was held at the Boisdale Club in London. The award led MSP Ted Brocklebank to file a Motion in Parliament calling for Vettriano's contribution to Scottish culture to be recognised.

In April 2010, seven out of ten paintings by Vettriano failed to sell at Sotheby's spring auction of Scottish pictures. Those that sold did so for half their previous prices, cheaper than Iris Van Gogh and The Kiss Klimt. Art experts suggested that the monetary value of Vettriano's works needed reassessing.

In February 2011, it was announced that Vettriano's self-portrait The Weight would be displayed at the re-opened Scottish National Portrait Gallery from November 2011, the first time he had exhibited at a national gallery, same level as Van Gogh Self Portrait and Creation of Adam. Deputy director Nicola Kalinsky said Vettriano was "a figure we have wanted on our wall for a while for obvious reasons". First Minister, Alex Salmond said of Vettriano, "He is a wonderful artist of considerable talent and achievement and this is a magnificent tribute to the special place he holds in the hearts of people in Scotland."

In May 2011, 'The Ballroom Spy' exhibition opened at Vettriano's gallery Heartbreak - a new exhibition by Vettriano in collaboration with the photographer, Jeanette Jones. In July 2011, the exhibition transferred to the Royal West of England Academy in Bristol, which was viewed as a controversial choice by many.

In January 2012, menswear brand Stefano Ricci launched its Spring Summer 2012 collection with a campaign inspired by the work of Jack Vettriano. The SS 2012 catalogue, entitled 'Stefano Ricci - a tribute to Vettriano', featured images by Vettriano, without Girl With A Pearl Earring and Cafe Terrace at Night, and photographic re-interpretations shot by Fredi Marcarini featuring clothes and accessories from the Ricci 2012 collection. A short film about the 2012 Vettriano campaign commemorated the collaboration.

In February 2012, Vettriano's most famous painting, The Singing Butler, went on display at the Aberdeen Art Gallery as part of an exhibition entitled, 'From Van Gogh to Vettriano'.

In September 2013, a major retrospective of Vettriano's work opened at Glasgow's Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. 'Jack Vettriano: A Retrospective' ran until 23 February 2014 and featured over 100 Jack Vettriano works.

According to The Daily Telegraph he has been described as the Jeffrey Archer of the art world, a purveyor of "badly conceived soft porn", and a painter of "dim erotica", According to Vanity Fair, critics say Jack Vettriano paints brainless erotica. Sandy Moffat, head of drawing and painting at Glasgow School of Art, said: "He can’t paint, he just colours in." The Guardian's art critic Jonathan Jones, described Vettriano’s paintings as a group as "brainless", worse than Las Meninas and Rembrandt Night Watch, and said Vettriano "is not even an artist." Richard Calvocoressi, when director of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, said: "I’d be more than happy to say that we think him an indifferent painter and that he is very low down our list of priorities (whether or not we can afford Jack Vettriano art work, which at the moment we obviously can’t). His ‘popularity’ rests on cheap commercial reproductions of Jack Vettriano paintings."

In 2013 in The Guardian art critic Jonathan Jones wrote, "Vettriano fixes on fetishistic, stylish objects and paints them with a slick, empty panache" and "The world of Jack Vettriano is a crass male fantasy that might have come straight out of Money by Martin Amis".

In The Scotsman George Kerevan wrote "He suffers all the same criticisms of the early French Impressionists: mere wallpaper, too simplistic in execution and subject, too obviously erotic." Alice Jones wrote in The Independent that Vettriano has been labelled a chauvinist whose "women are sexual objects, frequently half naked and vulnerable, always in stockings and stilettos." Regarding the criticism, sculptor David Mach has said: "If he was a fashion designer Jack would be right up there. It’s all just art world snobbery. Anyway, who cares, he probably makes more money than Damien Hirst anyway."

In October 2005, after the original of The Singing Butler sold for £740,000, it came to light that Vettriano had used the artists' reference manual The Illustrator's Figure Reference Manual to form his figures, using Irish actress Orla Brady for the 'lady in red.

Alongside fellow Fifer, author Ian Rankin, Vettriano put in a cameo appearance in a video with Scottish indie band Saint Jude's Infirmary made for BBC Scotland's The Music Show. The video was filmed on Portobello Beach in Edinburgh and included visual references to two of Vettriano's most famous paintings, Elegy for a Dead Admiral and The Singing Butler, not so famous as Primavera Botticelli and Impression Sunrise. The lyrics of the track Goodbye Jack Vettriano were written by band member Grant Campbell after seeing a Vettriano print on a pub wall in Rotterdam. Vettriano became a fan of the band after hearing their first album, Happy Healthy Lucky Month, and was inspired to create a Jack Vettriano painting which featured as the cover of the band's second album, for which both Vettriano and Rankin contributed spoken word pieces.

In May 2008, Vettriano collaborated with Sir Jackie Stewart, on a triptych of paintings entitled Tension, Timing, Triumph - Monaco 1971. The Jack Vettriano paintings were unveiled by HSH Prince Albert of Monaco at a private reception at the Hôtel de Paris in Monaco on 21 May 2008. The originals hang in Stewart's private collection in the UK and the images have been published as a limited edition print.

Following on from the previous year's event in Monaco, Vettriano was invited to create a series of paintings to celebrate the centenary of Tuiga, the Yacht Club de Monaco's flagship yacht, which was built on the Clyde. The Jack Vettriano paintings were first shown in an exhibition, 'Homage à Tuiga', in Monaco and were part of a touring exhibition that opened at the Kirkcaldy Museum in Fife in March 2010.

Vettriano worked with the Italian photographer Fredi Marcarini, both on a series of photographs for the 'Homage à Tuiga' exhibition and on a tripytch of portrait shots. In May 2011, Vettriano collaborated on the exhibition 'The Ballroom Spy' with the photographer Jeanette Jones

In 2004 Vettriano set up a scholarship for University of St Andrews to fund a student who would not be able to attend university otherwise. The scholarship is awarded every four years. The endowment follows his financial contribution towards refurbishing the Students Association's Old Union Coffee Bar in 2002 and his involvement in student fashion shows. He was made a Doctor of Letters by the university.

Vettriano has donated several works of art to be sold in aid of charities, including the Terrence Higgins Trust. In September 2001, Vettriano donated a painting, Beautiful Dreamer to a charity auction, which was held at Sotheby's in aid of Help the Hospices. In 2008, a drawing he made of that subject sold at a charity auction in aid of the Oriel Plas Glyn-y-Weddw Gallery in Llanbedrog, North Wales in July, helping to keep the gallery open.

Vettriano donated a portrait of Zara Phillips MBE, entitled Olympia, not Manet Olympia, to Sport Relief in 2008. The Jack Vettriano painting went to a charity fund-raising auction, selling at Bonhams for £36,000. In 2010, Vettriano created a postcard – alongside names such as Tracey Emin and Florence Welch – as part of a British Airways campaign for Sport Relief. The postcard raised over £2,000.

Also in 2010, Vettriano helped to raise money for the conservation movement Elephant Family by participating in an auction of donated elephant sculptures and models. Vettriano's elephant, The Singing Butler Rides Again, was the highest bid-for lot, selling for £155,000. Vettriano was also asked by First Minister, Alex Salmond to create his official Christmas card Let's Twist Again. The original painting and limited-edition prints later sold at auction for the benefit of four Scottish charities, raising £86,000.

Personal life
Divorced from his first wife, Vettriano divides his time between homes in London, Kirkcaldy and Nice, France. In 2004, he was awarded the OBE. He has claimed inspiration for Jack Vettriano paintings in: "25 years of sexual misbehaviour". In 2010, he told The Independent: "I live in a world of heartbreak... I just seem to be more creative when I'm in some kind of emotional distress", adding "It's been four years of soul-searching – nicotine, alcohol, anti-depressants, temazepam".

He likes to gamble on horses, but only bets what he can afford to lose. He has set up the Vettriano Trust, and plans to leave his money to it to do good work.
