Exhibition of signed and limited edition prints by painter Jack Vettriano, Margate

27 March 2014

A Kent gallery 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 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.

Caroline Lovely, who owns Lovelys gallery in Margate where the exhibition will appear, said: “Vettriano’s so popular because he captures people’s imagination. He has a very recognisable style but every picture is different – romantic, mysterious, or erotic – and tells a story, and people want to be a part of that story.

“He’s not been accepted by the art establishment at all but he’s carried on working, and people admire his tenacity. For these reasons we expect the exhibition will be very well attended.”

In 2004 Vettriano’s 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 in Margate runs from Saturday, March 29, to Saturday, April 19. The gallery in Northdown Road does not open on Sundays. More details at www.lovelysgallery.co.uk
