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.
“I think the light in the Riviera is just gorgeous and for someone like me, the sheer visual pleasure that you get from being in that kind of environment – looking at beautiful motorcars, looking at beautiful women, the style and architecture – it stimulates all your senses.” Vettriano seems to have got bored with the subject of his rejectioon by the art establishment . He believes the public’s appetite for reproductions of his work is a greater reward than any acceptance by the Scottish art establishment, an issue that as far as he is concerned has been “hung, drawn and quartered”. He said: “I’m pleased when somebody spends £20 on a poster and in some ways, that is my measure of success: that a man on the street will go and do that.
“It’s not about committees sitting in smoke-filled rooms making decisions. My support is the working man.” Jack Vettriano gallery
Sotheby’s Scottish Art auction takes place in London on Wednesday, September 30, 2009 and it will bring to the market more than 150 works from many of the leading names in the field of predominantly 20th Century Scottish Art. The Scottish Colourists will feature strongly, as will Anne Redpath, Joan Eardley, Peter Howson and Jack Vettriano and the sale is estimated to bring in the region of £4 million. All of the sale’s offerings will be exhibited at Edinburgh’s Mansfield Traquair between Tuesday, September 15 and Thursday, September 17 and this exhibition is open to the public. Jack Vettriano will be represented by some 15 works, the most valuable of which is Bathers, which was exhibited at The Solstice Gallery in Edinburgh in August 1991 in the very same exhibition as two of the artist’s most iconic images, The Singing Butler and Mad Dogs. Bathers dates to the most significant period of Vettriano’s career and is expected to fetch £100,000-150,000. Pincer Movement , which has been published as a limited edition print , is also for sale. Photogold has supplied Jack Vettriano prints online since 1998. Guardian art reviews

Two of Scotland’s heavyweight artists have teamed up to help new band St Jude’s Infirmary with their new album . Ian Rankin and Jack Vettriano have made contributions with Rankin penning lyrics and recording tracks and Vettriano creating a self-portrait for its latest album, released this weekend
St Jude’s Infirmary will showcase This Has Been The Death of Us on Saturday, also unveiling its unique artwork – created by Vettriano after he was so moved by one of its songs he painted the self-portrait as a gift.
The album is all about Edinburgh, described as a “love letter to Edinburgh” by the band who have written about its streets and pubs, with the help of Rankin and Vettriano.
Bassist Grant Campbell, 34, from Abbeyhill, said: “There is no question Ian and Jack have become great patrons for the band. “I am sure there will be people who will be wary of their involvement, but when they hear the album they’ll appreciate their value. Ian has an amazing syncopation to his spoken word and Jack has a voice that sounds like it’s been dug up from the coalfield.”
St Jude’s Infirmary will perform an acoustic set at the launch of the album, on Saturday night, at the National Portrait Gallery. It has not yet been confirmed whether Rankin and Vettriano will attend. Jack Vettriano
is one of the UK’s top selling artists with The Singing Butler being his most famous artwork .
