5.0 out of 5 stars Scottish flavour with Vettriano 25 July 2000
By A Customer
Anyone who doesn't know the paintings by Jack Vettriano should take some time to browse this book. Those wishing to explore the wealth of Scottish writers should also take a look at this book, for here you will find the heart of modern Scotland.
Being a fan of Vettriano I was going to buy this book regardless of the "extra" content, but after several read throughs I can appreciate more what people might gain from gazing upon a Vettriano painting. For me it is the idealised world of days gone by when men were men and women were woman.
A delightful book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Introduction to Vettriano's Art 29 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Vettriano is a controversial artist who attracts scorn from the artists' 'establishment', perhaps because his work is highly approachable by people who appreciate beauty and artistic quality without possessing an educated background in 'art'. His work has an immediate impact on the untutored eye, and it evokes a powerful, yet mysterious eroticism. This book is a small, but rich introduction to Vettriano's work, delightfully set into the context of Scottish poetry and prose extracts which complement the visual images, reinforcing their mystery. The words used are well chosen in this respect, encouraging the viewer to develop an independent view of the artist's intentions. The essentially Scottish quality of Vettriano's painting is significantly enhanced by Gordon Smith's talent in this. The book is an excellent introduction to the art, and will be appreciated by non-specialists as a joy to read, again and again.
