The Singing Butler stars at Vettriano retrospective in Glasgow

The Singing Butler canvas print

The Singing Butler , Vettriano’s iconic painting , has taken a starring role at Vettriano’s retrospective at the Kelvingrove Art gallery in Glasgow. Over 100 of his paintings are featured in the exhibition which has filled the gallery with the curious and devoted.

Kelvingrove Art Gallery in Glasgow

The art gallery itself is almost full to bursting point . There are queues to see certain pictures and there is a queue at the till in the exhibition shop. The postcard rack is emptying fast  and the limited edition prints are being snapped up.

Jack Vettriano has cooperated with other artists and bands in Scotland , most notable the Scottish band St Jude’s Infirmary . He  starred in the video of the band’s song ‘Goodbye Jack Vettriano’ which was recorded yesterday on the beach at Edinburgh. The band faithfully recreated the scene of Vettriano’s most famous image of the Singing Butler

They only intended to ask his permission to recreate some of his paintings in the shoot, but they were stunned when the elusive artist volunteered to feature in the video.
He made the offer after the band presented him with a copy of the song during a hastily arranged meeting at Edinburgh Airport last Sunday.
Drummer Mark Francis, 31, said: “He rang us up later to tell us he loved the track and also said that he would appear in the music show video. Mr Vettriano then called us later in the week to tell us that he has talked Ian Rankin into getting involved as well.
“We’re delighted that they are both coming to Porty beach. Jack wants to have ‘love’ tattooed on his knuckles – just like in the lyrics of our song.” Guitarist and cellist Ashley Campbell, 28, added: “It’s all just snowballed from when we met him at the weekend. “He had heard of our collaboration with Ian, and we put them in touch with each other for what will be a rather surreal and exciting day for us. “Jack’s agreed to recreate some of the poses from his paintings and he’s going to get Ian to do the same. “The finished video should look great. “Jack’s annoyed they didn’t take us all to Leven beach, which is the inspiration for the beaches in his paintings. I’m sure the Edinburgh Riviera will do just as nicely though.”

Follow Photogold on TwitterThe exhibition is open Monday to Thursday and Saturday 10.00am-5.00pm and Friday and Sunday 11.00am-5.00pm.
 We recommend allowing an hour to fully enjoy the exhibition, which features more than 100 paintings.​

“Glasgow has nine galleries but Kelvingrove is the best one for such a major retrospective for someone of this stature,” the source said.

Jack Vettriano has announced  five prints – Blue, Blue, Scorched , the Sparrow and the Hawk , Love Story and Marked Heart. Phone Photogold on 07723-538941 for more details.

Vettriano has just finished curating his 20-year retrospective .  Over 100 paintings are featured in the exhibition . The Scottish artist revealed the details in an interview with the US magazine Vanity Fair. Vettriano’s exhibition in Kirkcaldy set attendance records.

 

“The gallery will also help promote edgy, younger artists.Showing landscapes and flowers doesn’t interest me. I’m trying to start a fire,” he said.

Last night, Nathalie Martin, the artist’s director at his Heartbreak gallery in London, said

“The reason it will be in Glasgow is because we got a very positive, very significant approach from the public gallery in question in Glasgow. It was their idea. This will be a once-in-a- lifetime opportunity to see the top ten, if not more of Vettriano’s works from the four corners of the globe . We’ve had a an extraordinary response from private collectors who own some of the works and have secured agreement for many of the paintings.”

The frank  interview in Vanity Fair was the first time the American public had gained so much personal information about Vettriano.

The interview details the fierce attacks by a number of critics who do not regard Vettriano’s work as “proper” art and his rejection by the Scottish art establishment.

In the interview, Vettriano, who was made an OBE in 2003 for services to the visual arts, gives a robust response when asked about his detractors pointing to him copying poses from the Illustrator’s Figure Reference Manual for The Singing Butler – which became the most expensive painting by a Scottish artist when it sold for £750,000 eight years ago.

“I don’t give a f***!!,” replied Vettriano, a former mining engineer from Methil in Fife. “Picasso said, ‘Other artists borrow – I steal’. And the same book I used was found in Francis Bacon’s studio when he died.”

Asked about accusations that his work was nothing more than “dim erotica”, Vettriano said his fans were “disappointed that the pictures aren’t pornographic enough”.

*update

The Jack Vettriano Exhibition 2013 is now open at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery until January.
