Jack Vettriano's powerful canvases of an alluring yet sinister world are beautifully captured in a new edition with 15 more recent images, from exhibitions between 2006 and 2010Vettriano's images are a gateway to a timeless place where past and present intertwine. 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. Emerging from the unlikely background of the Scottish coalfields, unknown and untutored, Jack Vettriano has become Scotland's most successful and controversial contemporary artist, his painting The Singing Butler selling for close to $1.3 million. Appearing on posters and cards, mugs and umbrellas, prints of his work outsell van Gogh, Dalí, and Monet, and his paintings have been acquired by celebrities around the world.

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.About the Author:
Jack Vettriano's solo exhibition in Edinburgh was a sell-out and since then he has had solo exhibitions in London, Hong Kong, New York, and Rome.
