I love Vettriano's work. No, this isn't "The Singing Butler" and yes, the paintings here are more sexual in nature. They are still great paintings. Whay I like about his work is imagining what the people in the paintings are thinking. Some remind me of affairs, meeting or waiting for a lover, etc. They are very emotionally charges. Nothing "dirty" is here, they are more suggestive to me than anything really adult. If you're more famiiar with his work, you will enjoy this book.
This book is full of the most wonderful paintings by Jack Vettriano accompanied by his biography and the story behind the paintings. I had not noticed that almost everyone in his paintings smokes, for instance. Now I also know why. Highly recommended for fans of Vettriano as well as students of contemporary art.
I was aggravated that I could not find many prints of his. I purchased this and framed the ones I liked. Wish they had bigger books.
