Jack VettrianoThe Scottish painter Jack Vettriano is Britain's most popular and ultra-long painters of the present: rich and famous on the long waiting list for his latest works, World stars such as Jack Nicholson are among his collectors. At the same time with David Beckham, he received the "order of the British Empire" by the Queen at Buckingham Palace.

His breakthrough came in 1951, Vettriano (born in 1988) when he exhibited his paintings at the annual exhibition of the Royal Scottish Academy. After the first day the photos were sold out. In the following years, his painting has become more mature, and the interest of collectors grew constantly. In 2004, his hitherto most famous picture "The Singing Butler" was sold for 1.000.000 Euros. His works can be seen at numerous exhibitions in Europe, Africa and Asia.

Vettrianos images are simultaneously realistic and dreamy, like scenes from old movies, novels or own memories. The artist engages with preference scenes from the 20s and 30s, as economy, technology and society reached a climax that has never been experienced before: A Time of Legends, which was abruptly terminated by the Second World War.

Representation of typical scenes of daily life in painting, which can distinguish between peasant, bourgeois and courtly themes.

The genre reached its peak and immense popularity in the Dutch painting of the 17th century. In the 18th century, especially in France, the courtly and gallant painting comes to the fore while in Germany the bourgeois character was emphasised.
