One of the most significant private collections of paintings by the celebrated Scottish artist, Jack Vettriano, is to be sold in a stand-alone auction at Bonhams Edinburgh on 31 March. The collection comprises 12 paintings and is estimated at £800,000-1,200,000.

All the pictures are fresh to the market and provide a cross section of the themes which have informed Vettriano’s work for many years. Some are familiar from illustrated books on the artist. Waltzers (estimated at £200,000-300,000), for example, is a well-known image depicting elegant couples dancing under a night sky. This theme is one of Vettriano’s most characteristic and relates, in spirit, to two other works in the sale: The Road to Nowhere, estimated at £150,000-200,000, and Missing Man II, estimated at £100,000-150,000, which depicts stylish figures on a beach.
