Thanks Kelly - Great Taste!

Thanks Kelly for introducing me to Jack Vettriano!

Jack Vettriano is a Scottish born painter that has become somewhat of a celebrity in England as he continues to have wildly popular exhibitions. Vettriano has had sell-out exhibitions in Edinburgh, London, Hong Kong, Johannesburg and New York.
Vettriano, a former mining engineer, works in a film noir style and somewhat sexual overtones can be found in many of his works.
He is portrayed in many of his works as the "male predator".

I have fallen in love with his work because it is tasteful, sexy and romantic.









Above is my favorite!

Anyways, boob shots are always nice. Did Big Tobacco pay him to have all the women smoking? ha!

Jenny! said...

Brian:
There was really only one boob shot...and I think Big Tobacco must have been stuffing his pockets...that or he just thinks woman who smoke are hot!

Jenny! said...

Brian:
Almost forgot about your prize...you get ot look at a boob!

RAFFI said...

novel thing to do: paint sexy, half-naked women and men salivating over them. he is talented though, thanks for the referral. i'm thinking i might take on my own sexy painting theme: my dick in various places.... cool!

jungle jane said...

Boooooiiiiiing!

Ashley said...

I have seen the picture of the people dancing hanging up lots of places. I bet most of those people have no idea about the other pictures he has painted. I have to say, I don't love it. But art is subjective and we all get to like different things.

I will post one of my favorites on my blog.

Hammer said...

Very realistic.

Yoda said...

I absolutely LOVE these paintings!! I think I saw some of these before, but never knew that all of them were from this ONE guy. I want some of them for my new apt!! If not the real things, replicas will make do ;-)

I like the fingering dude painting the best!

Fever Dog said...

Vettriano's style reminds me a lot of Edward Hopper -- but there's a lot of pictures here I hadn't seen before, great job!

DoGGa said...

Take a look at her writings and her postings and scroll back a little and you can find my winning story... Its really good, just thought I would say that Ms. Jenny...

Jenny! said...

Hammer:
I think so, but still a bit of fantasy!

Jenny! said...

Yoda:

Sassy Blondie said...

Jenny-My favorite Vettrianos are entitlted "The Singing Butler", "Dance Me To The End of Love", "The Shape of Things To Come", and "Private Dancer" which you posted. I don't find them the least bit obscene, although some of his stuff I couldn't hang in my living room. Glad you found something new to enjoy!

Gorilla Bananas said...

Is it safe to bare a nipple with a cigarette in hand?

Nancy said...

My fav Vettriaino is hanging on my livingroom wall ... (in background of the pic posted on my blog)

It's called the Singing Butler

Jenny! said...

Inside of Me:
You are welcome!

Jenny! said...

Sassy:
I don't find it obscene either...very tastefully sexy!

Jenny! said...

Gorilla:
As long as you aren't drunk!

Jenny! said...

Honkeie2:

istanbultory said...

Plenty to salivate over there...I'm Capricorn. And I do like to be tied up and dominated. But only by members of the clergy or individuals dressed as same....

Jeanette said...

I like it! But who doesn't like tits and ass in their artwork

MONA said...

Pressed against the wall in total abandon! BOING! I am dead!

very enlightning post specially knowing what THEY want ;)

Nocturnal said...

Vettriaino is definitely a new one, he does nice work. I'm more of a Gottfried Helnwein kinda guy.

Cheers
