We’re delighted to announce that tickets are now on general release for Jack Vettriano: The Early Years exhibition in 2022.

The exhibition, co-curated with the artist, is a celebration of his extraordinary career and will bring together works he painted in his 20s until he moved to London in 2000.

Uncertainty over when social distancing and travel restrictions will be lifted had meant we had to postpone this highly-anticipated show until next year so we could give visitors the great experience we had planned.

It will now take place from 17 June to 23 October, 2022.

The postponement does come with a silver lining, however, as the exhibition will run for an additional two months, allowing far greater access than was previously possible and giving more people the opportunity to attend over the summer and October holiday periods next year.

The exhibition has generated worldwide interest as it will feature early paintings by Vettriano, including nearly a dozen produced before he decided to become a full-time artist and are signed Jack Hoggan, his birth name.

In recognition of the process of development and evolution that has taken him from the self-taught artist who was turned down by art college to one of the world’s most highly sought after living painters, Vettriano decided the time was right to publicly acknowledge some of his earliest works and has chosen to return to Fife where he was born and spent his formative years.
