Jack Vettriano has published a new set of 6 canvas prints. The new set of canvas prints includes well-known images of the Singing Butler , Bluebird at Bonneville, In Thoughts of You and Dance me to the End of Love as well as the Picnic Party and the Pier. Vettriano fans are waiting for news about his new London exhibition which is scheduled for this summer . His recent exhibition in Kirkcaldy was a massive success. 46,000 people went to Kirkcaldy Museum and Art Gallery to see Jack Vettriano’s new exhibition Days of Wine and Roses.
Speculation is mounting over the paintings including Game On which might be featured in the Jack Vettriano exhibition which will be opening in Kirkcaldy next year . Vettriano has stated that his most famous painting The Singing Butler will be part of the exhibition . Sotheby’s auctioneers are helping him track down his best-known paintings, seeking loans from collectors and anonymous buyers.
Vettriano has, somewhat optimistically , offered the show to the National Galleries of Scotland, which has always shunned his work.
It was “mildly short of a disgrace” that NGS had never shown or bought his work for the national collection, he said, adding: “That may be the opportunity for the National Galleries to say, ‘Right, we’ll show this stuff and let the public make their minds up’.”
Vettriano has been on tour in the UK including an appearance at the Aberdeen Music Hall taking questions from up to 800 people. It was something he had never done before, showing the popularity of the so-called “People’s Painter”. Game On was published as a limited Edition Giclee print , Paper: 310 gsm Hahnemuhle mould made paper
Orla Brady is to appear on Richard & Judy’s show on UK TV today at 2pm to be interviewed about the new series of ‘Mistresses‘ on BBC1 but also to talk about being ‘the lady in red’ in Vettriano’s painting, ‘The Singing Butler‘. Information aboutÂ today’s interview was released a few hours ago. Orla is today, to be presented with a print of ‘Dancer In Emerald’, the sister painting to ‘The Singing Butler’, which features the actress in the same dancing pose but wearing a dark emerald dress instead of the now famous, red dress.Â The original painting, ‘Dancer In Emerald’ has gone on loan to the Kirkcaldy Museum in Fife as part of this year’s Homecoming Scotland celebrations. jack vettriano was in the news last month when he boasted , as most artist do , that he had bedded most of his models . Whether Orla Brady is one such conquestÂ has not beenÂ revealed
Jack Vettriano has revealed he turned down the chance to produce a painting for the National Galleries of Scotland – because they asked for a portrait of golfer Colin Montgomerie .
He said: “I was in France when I got a call from my art dealer, who said there might have been a breakthrough. ‘The national galleries would like you to do a portrait’. I said, ‘Who?’. ‘Colin Montgomerie’.
“I said, ‘I’m afraid that the answer is no’, I don’t do men with breasts, and I don’t mean that as unkind to Colin Montgomerie (sic) . My art dealer said, ‘Think about it’ and I said, ‘I have, and the answer is no’.”
Later in the evening at the event, An Audience with Jack Vettriano, the artist was asked if he would ever paint a man as anything other than a prop for women. He replied: “I have to paint a face I like. Have you seen Colin Montgomerie’s face recently?”
However, gallery chiefs denied knowledge of any approach being made and insisted the NGS had not commissioned a portrait of the golfer.
Vettriano has had a long-running feud with the arts establishment and he has never had any of his work in a major gallery

Jack Vettriano’s painting of Zara Phillips for Sports relief with her reclining on a Union flagÂ is up for auction. It isÂ predicted to defy the credit crunch and fetch a stunning £1 million.
“We hope people will start bidding from £100,000,” says a spokesman for Bonhams, which is conducting the auction in aid of Sport Relief. “It’s a very rare piece and the only one of a young royal around that is up for auction. We would love it to hit the million mark and certainly think it is a possibility.”
“I was shaking and she had to calm me down before we started,” says Vettriano. “It was always going to be a more natural rather than a formal portrait.”
The Fife-born artist’s paintings now sell at high prices. Whether this work can beat his previous record of £744,800, for theÂ The Singing ButlerÂ in 2004 remains to be seen.
Jack Vettriano has donated a drawing of Beautiful Dreamer to an auction to raise funds for a Welsh art gallery under threat of closure . Oriel Plas Glyn-y-Weddw gallery in Pwllheli, North Wales.The drawing on an A6 card, shows the image of a woman standing at the window in Vettriano’s London studio. It is the first drawing he has ever submitted for public display.
“Beautiful Dreamer” will be auctioned, along with 11 other works , in an effort to raise enough money to save the gallery – one of the oldest in Wales – from closure. It will feature in the auction this Saturday alongside works from selected artists including Wrexham-born Keith Bowen, Gareth Parry, William Selwyn and Welsh concert singer Bryn Terfel.
The gallery’s director, Gwyn Jones, revealed that significant attention has already been paid to Vettriano’s piece. According to the BBC, he said: “We’ve already had substantial interest with people wanting to place phone bids. The reserve is £5,000 and we’re hoping it will make £10,000.”
The identity of anti-establishment artist Banksy has been a closely guarded secret until now, but new evidence from a Sunday newspaper investigation suggests that he is in fact Robin Gunningham, 34, a former pupil at the £9,240-a-year Bristol Cathedral School.
Banksy rose to fame by using stencils to paint illegal grafitti images on public walls, often with a topical political message. His images have become so popular that some councils and businesses have opted to protect his creations rather than wash them off.
