Jack Vettriano Paints Romantic Depictions with a Hard-Boiled, Noir Feel

These Jack Vettriano paintings are perfect for anyone in the mood for love. Depicting classy couples in fancy restaurants, bars and hotel settings, it’s as though Vettriano transports the viewers to romanticized scenes straight out of a hard-boiled detective story or noir novel. The fashion adorned by Vettriano’s subjects would make even the cast of Mad Men jealous, and the warm colors of his paintings set an atmosphere so conducive to romance, it may as well be an aphrodisiac. These illustrations are simply that stunning.

Many will be surprised to learn that Jack Vettriano got into painting rather late in his life, starting at 21 after being given a set of watercolor paints by his then girlfriend. He’s since sold his paintings all around the world, with one piece selling for near $1,200,000. Not bad for a self-taught artist.
