Jack Vettriano and Heartbreak Gallery donated this painting for a charity fund-raising auction that took place on Tuesday 27th November 2012 at the Great Scot Awards 2012 Dinner at Boisdale of Canary Wharf in London.
Jack Vettriano personally chose this painting for the auction and comments:
“Night-time Rituals, explores a theme that I like to return to from time to time – it’s about creating an atmosphere of anticipation and indulging in those rare moments where all your senses collide.”
Night-time Rituals II is one of a series of new paintings by Jack Vettriano that will feature in a touring exhibition in 2013.
Proceeds raised at this fund-raising auction were to be donated to STV Appeal 2012, which was set up to raise funds for children’s’ charities across Scotland.
