View Famous Artist Jack Vettriano Paintings

Jack Vettriano was born in Scotland in 1953 of Italian parents. He began his career as a mining engineer in the Scottish coalfields, painting only in his spare time. In 1988, Vettriano gave up his job as a mining engineer in order to paint full-time. He left school at 16 and became an apprentice mining engineer, but later took up painting as a hobby in his twenties. Nicknamed “The People’s Painter,” the self-taught Vettriano is one of Britain’s most popular artists. Above is his moody “Dance Me to the End of Love” painting that simmers with underlying intrigue.
