About Jack Vettriano: A Retrospective

From Saturday 21 September, Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is staging the most comprehensive exhibition​ ever devoted to Scottish artist, Jack Vettriano. This is the first major Vettriano retrospective, bringing together his most definitive and best-loved works gathered for the first time from private collections around the world.

Vettriano's art has been described by Sir Tim Rice as evoking 'an era of Hollywood but no film of that town's heyday was made with Vettriano's burning colour'. The paintings in the range date from 1992 - 2012 and include familiar works such as Dance Me To The End of Love, Mad Dogs... and Elegy for the Dead Admiral.

The exhibition runs from Saturday 21 September 2013 - Sunday 23 February 2014. Tickets are £5 adults and £3 concessions.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Jack Vettriano: A Retrospective are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
