Jack Vettriano Limited Edition Prints
For fifteen years The Fine Art Company has specialised in sourcing rare open and Limited Edition Prints by artist Jack Vettriano. Dubbed 'The Peoples' Painter', Jack's artistic career began when a girlfriend gave him a set of watercolour paints for his 21st birthday. From then on Vettriano spent much of his spare time teaching himself to paint. In 1989 he submitted two oil paintings to the Royal Scottish Academy’s annual exhibition, both of which were accepted and sold on the first day. The following year, an equally enthusiastic reaction greeted three new figurative paintings which he entered for the renowned Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy in London. His new life as an artist began from that point on. Over the last twenty years, interest in Vettriano’s work has grown exponentially. There have been sell-out solo exhibitions in Edinburgh, London, Hong Kong and New York. 2004 was an exceptional year in Vettriano’s career when his best known painting 'The Singing Butler' was sold at Sotheby’s auction house in London for nearly £750,000; he was awarded an OBE for Services to the Visual Arts and was the subject of a South Bank Show documentary.
