An eagerly awaited exhibition of Jack Vettriano’s early paintings is the latest event to be pushed back until next year.

Hopes are high it will bring huge numbers to Kirkcaldy Galleries, but fans will have to wait until June 2021 to see his work.

Jack Vettriano: The Early Years exhibition was due to run from September until November, but it has been rescheduled for June 18-October 24 next year.

The exhibition had attracted widespread attention, locally and across the UK as well as internationally, but with increased uncertainty over the timing and phasing of the easing of lockdown restrictions, it has been decided to postpone now as a precaution rather than disappoint thousands of Vettriano followers if the show had to be cancelled at a later date..

Jack Vettriano was born in St Andrews , Fife, Scotland in 1951 and grew up in the mining town of Methil . He was raised in poverty – he lived with his mother, father and older brother in a spartan miner’s house, sharing a bed with his brother and wearing hand-me-down clothes. From the age of 10, his father sent him out doing any job that would earn money. His father took half his earnings. After leaving school at 15, he followed his father down the mine, working as an apprentice engineer. Vettriano took up painting as a hobby in the 1970s when a girlfriend bought him a set of watercolours for his birthday and from then on, he spent much of his spare time teaching himself to paint.

In 1984, Vettriano first submitted his work to an art exhibition in the museum . Jack Nicholson, Sir Alex Ferguson , Sir Terence Conran and Sir Tim Rice are amongst his fans .
