The Singing Butler is unquestionably the most iconic and popular image by Jack Vettriano. The image is now over 20 years old and still selling strong .
Vettriano is still a working artist and releasing new images of his work. Recently the print Diva , a signed Limited Edition Giclee Print was published .
Bluebird at Bonneville by Scottish artist Jack Vettriano is probably one of his more popular images .
Such is the demand for the The Singing Butler that a sketch by Jack Vettriano of his most famous image sold at auction for just under £40,000. The money went to the St Andrews University Students Charity fund . Vettriano impressed students by producing the sketch in under an hour during a masterclass at the University a few years ago .
Mr Vettriano and the university principal Dr Brian Lang decided to offer the sketch to the students to sell after hearing of their fund-raising efforts.
It sold for £39,650, almost double its estimated price, when it went under the hammer at Sotheby’s Scottish pictures sale at Gleneagles Hotel.
The Singing Butler sketch was bought by a UK private collector and it went on to play a starring role in Vettriano’s retrospective on show at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery in Glasgow .
