Lovelys award-winning gallery in Cliftonville has been chosen for the second time to host an exhibition of rare and new signed limited edition prints by one of the country’s most talked about and collectable artists, Jack Vettriano.

Following on from the success of last year’s The Classic Collection exhibition, The Red Room is a series of previously unreleased signed limited editions showcasing Vettriano’s more provocative, and occasionally erotic work.

Over the last 20 years, interest in Vettriano’s work has grown consistently. There have been sold out solo exhibitions in Edinburgh, London, Hong Kong and New York.

In 2004 his best known painting The Singing Butler was sold at Sotheby’s for close to £750,000; he was awarded an OBE for Services to the Visual Arts and was the subject of a South Bank Show documentary, entitled ‘Jack Vettriano: The People’s Painter‘

The Vettriano exhibition at Lovelys runs from March 29 to April 19.
