A new version of The Singing Butler by Jack Vettriano is to go on sale at auction. A retrospective of The Singing Butler will be auctioned by Sotheby’s at Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire on 26 August.
Vettriano produced a quick version of the work during a masterclass he gave at the university in 1993.
Now the university is about to benefit from the soaring value of the artist’s work by selling the 15in by 12in picture on 26 August.Proceeds from the sale will go to the St Andrews Students Charities Campaign, which supports a range of local, national and international causes.

“The sketch captures one of Jack’s most iconic images and will, I’m sure, have huge appeal to collectors around the world.”
