Jack Vettriano

'Bluebird at Bonneville' by Jack Vettriano

The latest name to join the impressive range of Limited Edition Prints from Red Rag Gallery is Internationally acclaimed Scottish artist Jack Vettriano . Born in Fife, Scotland in 1951, Jack Vettriano left school at sixteen to become a mining engineer. 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.

In 1989, Vettriano submitted two paintings to the Royal Scottish Academy’s annual exhibition; both were accepted and sold on the first day. The following year, an equally enthusiastic reaction greeted the three paintings, which he entered for the prestigious Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in London. Since then interest in Vettriano’s work has grown consistently with several sell-out solo exhibitions over the past twenty years in Edinburgh, London, Hong Kong and New York.

Red Rag are promoting 14 prints from Jack Vettriano including Bluebird at Bonneville , Pendine Beach and Birth of a Dream which were produced from a series of paintings inspired by the life of Sir Malcolm Campbell.
