Monet's Poppy Fields
Provenance - Bonhams Scotland and the Portland Art Gallery.
Monet’s Poppy Fields is famously the very first painting by Jack Vettriano and is uniquely mentioned in the artist's biographies when discussing how he first got into painting. Poppy Fields was originally in the possession of Vettriano's former wife until she gave the painting to a friend long before Vettriano was well known. The painting was subsequently kept underneath the friend’s “sofa” until' it came onto the open market in 2005, after The Singing Butler’s record sale’s amount of three quarters of a million pounds hit the headlines.
The sale of the painting will be accompanied by a letter from Bonhams Scotland confirming the authenticity and provenance of the painting.
Vettriano's Poppy Fields is a stunning piece and a great investment opportunity. Reasonable offers will be considered.
