Jack Vettriano A Life
Sobre o livro
Emerging from the unlikely background of the Scottish coalfields, unknown and untutored, Jack Vettriano has become Scotland's most successful and controversial contemporary artist. His images are a gateway to an alluring yet sinister world, a timeless place where past and present intertwine. Daylight scenes of heady optimism, painted against backdrops of beaches and racetracks, are counterbalanced by more disquieting canvases of complex night-time liasons in bars, clubs, bedrooms and ballrooms. His powerful canvases are beautifully captured in this new edition, which includes 15 more recent images, from exhibitions between 2006 and 2010.
