Born in Fife, Scotland in 1951, Jack Vettriano left school at sixteen to become a mining engineer. For his twenty-first birthday, a girlfriend gave him a set of watercolour paints, and he went on to achieve an OBE for Services to the Visual Arts, was the subject of a South Bank Show documentary entitled 'Jack Vettriano: The People's Painter', and his best known painting, which won him the title of best selling artist in Britain, 'The Signing Butler', sold for almost £750,000.
Vettriano's art works are painted with incredible talent, and are overflowing with powerful emotion, most often love, and lust. His naturalistic style and breathtaking use of colour draw you into the art work, and make you feel as though you are almost in the room.
