Jack Vettriano’s retrospective exhibition at Kelvin­grove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow has proved a massive hit with his fans who have travelled from all over the UK to view the exhibition . So it will be little surprise to them that the retrospective looks likely to set a new record for attendance. So far over 90,000 visitors have attended the exhibition .

The previous record was set by the Glasgow Boys show in 2010, which attracted more than 120,000 visitors as well as wide critical acclaim.
Exceptional demand for the show led to the museum, for the first time since 2006, opening late for one night in November.

The show closes on February 23 but organisers are hoping that strong attendance figures will continue into next month as the exhibition draws to a close.

Vettriano’s best selling print the Singing Butler  features in the show . The artist has expressed his gratitude to Glasgow for providing the stage for the major retrospective.

It has featured more than 100 of the artist’s paintings, including some of his best known images, such as The Singing Butler, Dance Me To The End of Love and The Weight. The Singing Butler and  Dance Me To The End of Love  have recently been released as signed limited edition prints .

A spokesman for Glasgow Life said: “The response to the Jack ­Vettriano retrospective has been outstanding, with tens of thousands of visitors flocking to Kelvingrove. Whether it breaks the attendance record will be a close-run thing. But we expect a surge in numbers when visitors realise they have just a few more weeks before the exhibition closes.”

Vettriano’s commercial success has not been matched critical acclaim , but he said that he expected it to be successful.

He said: “I doubt many critics have ever been to an exhibition of mine, to tell you the truth but I think they will go to this, because it is national, and I think I will get a lot of flak. But what I hope happens is that we break attendance records, and I don’t see why we can’t.”
