Jack Vettriano seems to have been inspired by the Riviera in France . He has announced a new set of 10 paintings based on the Clyde-built Tuiga – the flagship of the Yacht Club of Monaco .”Most people are stuck at the end of Berwick Pier doing landscapes and so to get invited to be involved with the Tuiga centenary was just lovely. Sometimes I just have to pinch myself and ask, ‘Is this really going on? Am I really here?’ . The paintings include The Masthead , Sunshine and Champagne, Mystery Man, Ship of Dreams and Below Deck.
Jack Vettriano’s Pincer Movement painting is to go on sale by auction at Sotheby’s on 30th September. Other paintings in the sale include Seated Nude (Study) , Study for Lady Stripper , After the Thrill is Gone (Study) , a letter of consequence II , Study for Lady Stripper , Twilight Zone and Self Portrait after Swannell
