Description

Jack Vettriano's first collection of paintings. Out of print.

From the publisher:

The painter Jack Vettriano emerged from unlikely beginnings as an apprentice mining engineer in Fife--unknown and untutored--to see his paintings acquired by celebrities around the world. His first solo exhibition sold out, as did the second, and he has since become Scotland's most successful and controversial contemporary artist.

Vettriano images are a gateway to an alluring yet sinister world; a timeless place where past and present intertwine. It is a world heavy on atmosphere, evoking the great noir movies and novels of our time.

In Lovers and Other Strangers, Jack Vettriano has chosen 100 of his most powerful canvases. These are accompanied by a compelling essay by the critic Anthony Quinn, which recounts Vettriano's early days in the Fife coalfields, his initial artistic endeavors on the backs of betting slips, his first solo exhibition and his present phenomenal success.
