Jack Vettriano: A Celebration – Paintings from Past and Present

29th March – 1st June 2014
Monday – Saturday 10am – 6pm
Heartbreak Gallery
Free admission

Heartbreak Gallery in London will be hosting an exhibition of twenty paintings by Scottish artist, Jack Vettriano, curated largely from private collections. Other works to be displayed include a number of previously unseen works by Vettriano, which have come directly from the artist’s studio. Many of the paintings featured in this exhibition are touring on loan to Heartbreak, following the recent Retrospective of the artist’s work held at Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum in Glasgow, which received a record-breaking 130,502 visitors during its 5 month run.

For Vettriano fans who were unable to visit the Retrospective exhibition in Glasgow, Heartbreak Gallery will be offering one last opportunity of seeing some of the works that were featured in this much talked about event. The works to be displayed in London range in date from 1992 to 2012 and include famous works such as ‘Elegy for a Dead Admiral’ and ‘Pendine Beach’, amongst other, lesser known works to be seen.

Alongside the exhibition of originals, Heartbreak will also be launching The Red Room Collection – a series of five of Jack Vettriano’s more erotic images, published for the first time as signed, limited edition prints.

Painting to be auctioned for STV Appeal 2013

Sir Tom Hunter donates his Vettriano to charity fund-raising auction

Jack Vettriano OBE (b.1951)
Night-Time Rituals II
Oil on canvas
12 x 15 inches (canvas size)
21 x 24 inches (frame size)
Signed, Painted in 2012

** Painting Sold for £65,000 **

Sir Tom Hunter has donated a painting by Jack Vettriano so that it may be auctioned to raise funds for the STV Appeal 2013.

Entitled Night-Time Rituals II, the painting was acquired by Sir Tom at a charity fund-raising dinner last year and the Scottish philanthropist has re-donated it for an on-line auction to raise funds for the STV Appeal, an annual fund-raising initiative launched in 2011 by STV and The Hunter Foundation to help children and young people affected by poverty in Scotland.

Night-time Rituals II will be on display at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow from 1st September to 11th October 2013.

The sale of Night-time Rituals II is being handled by Glasgow based auction house, McTears, via their on-line bidding platform Gallery 1842. Bidding started on-line on Sunday 1st September and ends during the live STV Appeal show on Friday 11th October.

Jack Vettriano has given his support to the re-gifted donation and comments:”I applaud Sir Tom’s generous decision to donate the painting that he acquired last year and would encourage any potential bidders to follow his example by bidding as generously as they can in the knowledge all funds will go to the STV Appeal, which was set up to address a hugely important issue for Scotland.

I was shocked to hear the statistic that 220,000 children in Scotland are living in poverty and I am pleased to have been able to make a contribution to the STV Appeal and to give my on-going support to this fund-raising initiative. Night-time Rituals, explores a theme to which I like to return from time to time – it’s about creating an atmosphere of anticipation and indulging in those rare moments where all your senses collide.”

Vettriano inspired story features in Steven Meisel’s greatest hits

In July 2013, the 25th Anniversary issue of Vogue Italia included a highlight of the Vettriano inspired fashion story, ‘Pulp: His Kind of Woman’, in their ‘Steven Meisel: Greatest Hits, Volume 1′ anthology, compiled to celebrate the magazine’s benchmark anniversary.

The internationally acclaimed fashion photographer, Steven Meisel, originally shot the 32-page story inspired by the paintings of Jack Vettriano for the August 2004 issue of Vogue Italia. Entitled ‘Pulp: His Kind of Woman’ , styled by Edward Enninful and produced by Eric Hoffman, Meisel’s fashion story was credited as being based on the paintings of Jack Vettriano and explores the film noir themes for which Jack has become famous.

Some of the photographs are direct interpretations of individual paintings, whilst others are more in homage to the style and atmoshpere of Vettriano’s work.
