The exhibition, co-curated with the artist, is a celebration of Vettriano’s extraordinary career and brings together works he painted in his 20s until he moved to London in 2000.
The exhibition has generated worldwide interest as it features early paintings by Vettriano, including nearly a dozen produced before he decided to become a full-time artist, that are signed Jack Hoggan, his birth name. You will also get to see Vettriano’s more famous works: Billy Boys, Bluebird at Bonneville, Valentine Rose and Mad Dogs (to name a few) and a rejection letter that he received from art school.

We are excited to say that there is an opportunity to meet Jack Vettriano on 1 September at Kirkcaldy Galleries. He will be signing his exhibition catalogues in person between 2pm and 4pm. This is a free event and can’t be booked. We’re expecting it to be busy so arrive early if you can!
If you don’t already have an exhibition catalogue, you can pick one up at the gallery on the day. The catalogue is full of stunning reproductions of Jack’s paintings – a wonderful record of his work and a thing of beauty in its own right.
