Jack Vettriano

1 July 2014

An intimate portrait of self-taught artist Jack Vettriano, whose nostalgic paintings of a lost age of glamour are instantly recognisable.

His most famous work, The Singing Butler, is the country's bestselling image and is reproduced on everything from calendars to jigsaws.

But despite his popularity, the self-taught miner's son from Fife has never been fully accepted by the art establishment.

This film offers an intimate and revealing portrait of Vettriano as he creates his latest painting, featuring actress Kara Tointon, and sees him talk with brutal honestly about his critics and how he deals with fame.
