New Jack Vettriano exhibition of Scottish prints

Posted on
Night in the City vettriano

A NEW Scottish exhibition showcasing a collection of original works by renowned artist Jack Vettriano has opened in Banff .
Some of the Fife-born artist’s well-known pieces will feature alongside a series of limited edition prints from throughout his career, including some of his earlier works.
Curated by gallery owner and collector, Mark Gask, the exhibition entitled ‘Jack Vettriano – a Scottish Artist’ will be held in Duff House, in Banff.

Vettriano has published limited edition prints throughout his career including Night in the City and  His Favourite Girl .

It is open to the public for 10 weeks and is included within the admission price to the House.
Vettriano, who is from Methil in Fife, is entirely self-taught.
More than 132,502 people attended the first major retrospective of the artist’s work held Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Art Gallery – a record for the museum.

Lorna Ewan from Historic Scotland said: “With his work being so famous in reproduction, I’m sure people will enjoy this opportunity to view a small sample of his work in the flesh.
“Drawn from a private collection, this could be the first time for many to see these originals and we are expecting it to be popular with visitors and fans alike.”
Mark Gask, of Gallery i, who loaned the paintings added: “Duff House is the perfect setting for this more intimate style exhibition, featuring a number of original art Scottish prints by one of Scotland’s most famous contemporary artists.
“The exhibition will also see one of the originals – Future World – available to purchase, as are all of the Vettriano limited edition prints.”

Jack Vettriano Limited Edition Giclee Prints from Photogold. Jack Vettriano was the subject of some debate last month when Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond chose one of his images, Let’s Twist Again ,  for his Christmas card. Despite this accolade a Scottish parliament group decided not to include any of Vettriano’s work in their art collection. MSP Ted Brocklebank said he hoped the First Minister’s use of the specially-commissioned Let’s Twist Again, which shows a glamorous couple dancing at a Christmas party, might prompt a change of heart.

Mr Brocklebank said: “If a man can sell as many paintings as he has, he must have something. Our parliament should be a place which represents the best of contemporary Scotland.”
