Valentine Rose print by Jack Vettriano

Auctioneer Bonhams have announced a unique auction of  a collection of paintings by Jack Vettriano .

It is believed the paintings could fetch up to £1.2m when they are sold at auction in Edinburgh.

The 12 paintings in the sale have never appeared at auction before. They will go under the hammer at Bonhams on 31 March for an estimated £800,000 to £1.2m.

The paintings, which are being sold by an anonymous collector, offer a cross-section of themes that have informed the artist’s work for many years.

Chris Brickley, Bonhams’ head of Scottish art, said: “This is one of the most comprehensive collections of Vettriano’s work ever assembled, covering all the major periods of the artist’s career and giving a vivid insight into his artistic development.

“This is the most important collection of Jack Vettriano’s work to appear at auction for the past 10 years.

“It spans the period when the artist was producing some of his most recognisable and best-loved images.

“Several of the paintings, for example Waltzers and Missing Man II, will be familiar from books about Vettriano and the very popular cards and posters which have been made from his work.”

Best-selling

Waltzers, estimated at £200-300,000, shows couples dancing under a night sky while The Road to Nowhere, estimated at £150-200,000, and Missing Man II, which could fetch up to £150,000, show figures on beaches.

Not all the works are dated but the earliest one that is dated is 1992 and the latest 2004.
