From the flap: Over the last few years Jack Vettriano has risen to fame meteorically. Emerging from the unlikely background of the Scottish coalfields, unknown and untutored, he has become Scotland’s most successful and controversial contemporary artist. Appearing on posters and cards, mugs and umbrellas, prints of his work outsell van Gogh, Dalf and Monet and his paintings have been acquired by celebrities around the world. His images have an often mysterious narrative and are a gateway to an alluring yet sinister world. Daylight scenes of heady optimism, painted against backdrops of beaches and racetracks, are counterbalanced by more disquieting canvases of complex night-time liaisons in bars, clubs, bedrooms and ballrooms. Jack Vettriano publishes for the first time over thirty new images, exhibited in his 2004 exhibition, as well as some recently discovered works, plus the best of the paintings previously published in Lovers and Other Strangers and Fallen Angels.
