Jack Vettriano is a Scottish painter who was born in 1951. A few month ago I saw some diaries in a bookstore which contained some copies of his paintings (http://www.teneues.de/teneuesshop/teNeues~Jack+Vettriano+2008_Jack+Vettriano~ISBN_3-8327-2323-4.htm). His pieces are reminiscent of the film noir-genre and I was immediately hooked by the elegant dressed persons in his work. The Portland Gallery in London shows and sells some of his paintings.
I just ordered this Vettriano bookmark calendar :) (http://www.amazon.com/Jack-Vettriano-2008-Bookmark-Calendar/dp/3832723692/ref=sr_1_30?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1195119724&sr=8-30).

Jack Vettriano ist ein schottischer Maler und wurde 1951 geboren. Vor wenigen Monaten stieß ich in einer Buchhandlung auf Taschenkalender, die einige seiner Werke zeigten (http://www.teneues.de/teneuesshop/teNeues~Jack+Vettriano+2008_Jack+Vettriano~ISBN_3-8327-2323-4.htm). Seine Bilder erinnern an das film noir-Genre und die Menschen, die er zeichnet, strahlen besonders durch ihren Kleidungsstil eine lässige Eleganz aus. Die Portland Gallery in London zeigt und verkauft einige seiner Arbeiten.
Ich habe soeben diesen Vettriano Lesezeichenkalender bestellt :) (http://www.amazon.de/Jack-Vettriano-Lesezeichenkalender-2008/dp/3832723692/ref=pd_bxgy_b_text_b?ie=UTF8&qid=1195119167&sr=8-7).

I love the style of the woman in the first picture. It's really snazzy.

That's my favorite style, too!
