Lovers and Other Strangers by Jack Vettriano

Book Description

Jack Vettriano's erotic, provocative and emotionally charged paintings have made him one of Britain's most successful contemporary artists. Collected by celebrities the world over, his exhibitions have regularly sold out and paintings now change hands for millions of pounds. In this beautifully packaged collection, Jack chooses 100 essential canvases that reflect the intensity and passion of his work. An elegant accompanying essay by critic Anthony Quinn recounts Jack's early years and his emergence as a successful artist. Filled with mysterious men and curvy, seductive yet enigmatic women, Jack's paintings are tales without text, storyboards about love and lust, possession and longing, pursuit and conquest. Understanding perfectly the stylish sexiness and intrigue that occurs when high life and low life collide, Jack also hints at memories of golden times, past and lost.

Author Biography - Jack Vettriano

Jack Vettriano is entirely self-taught. A Scotsman of Italian descent, he left school at sixteen to become a mining engineer working down the Fife coalfields. For his twenty-first birthday a girlfriend gave him a set of watercolour paints and from then on, he spent much of his spare time teaching himself to paint. His first solo exhibition in Edinburgh was a sell-out and since then he has had solo exhibitions in London, Hong Kong and New York. Over the last twenty years, interest in Vettriano's work has grown consistently. Vettriano's best known painting, The Singing Butler, was sold at Sotheby's for close to GBP750,000. He was awarded an OBE for Services to the Visual Arts. In 2013, a major twenty year Retrospective exhibition of Vettriano's work was staged at Kelvingrove art Gallery and Musuem in Glasgow. He lives in Edinburgh.
