Often painted with figures wearing black that stand out against soft lighting, Jack Vettriano’s wall art paintings capture fleeting moments of romantic interaction. Vettriano’s works of art were often made dramatic by his wrapping the painted scene in the elements of weather and late sun. A butler’s coattails flap as a breeze blows a woman’s hair. The late sun lights up the sand beach like liquid gold. On the beach in black suits and contrasting delicate linen, Vettriano’s painted figures sometimes exist in small social groups interacting in beautiful fleeting moments overlooked by large billowing clouds.
More intimate scenes are characterized by by Vettriano’s use of mostly black, a well placed light source and a single dominant color such as red or blue. Umbrella’s imply that special moments may be made of less than perfect circumstances.
In the 1970s, Vettriano started painting when a girlfriend brought him a set of watercolour paints. After creating many works of art and practicing by emulating the works of Monet’s Poppy Fields. Soon Jack vettriano decided to broaden his horizons.
In 1984, Vettriano first submitted his work to the Shell-sponsored art exhibition in the museum. Later, in 1989, artist Vettriano submitted 2 of his works on canvas to the the Royal Scottish Academy annual art show. Day one of the show saw the sale of both works of art. Consequently, several galleries approached Vettriano apparently to discuss representing his works. Exhibitions in Edinburgh, London, Hong Kong and Johannesburg were to follow. 21 of Vettriano’s paintings were on display when the artist’s works were introduced for his first New York City exhibition at The International 20th Century Arts Fair at The Armory.
