Whether you are thinking of buying your first Vettriano Limited Edition Print, or your second or third you may be asking yourself, which Vettriano Limited Edition Prints do other people buy, and which are the most popular?
In the many years of selling Limited Edition Prints, we have been asked for every print Vettriano published. There are some that stand out and are definite favourites among our clients.
We have tracked back our orders, looked at the searches people have made and come up with the 5 most wanted limited edition prints and even included a price guide. As they are the most wanted prints, they can be a little more expensive. To help, we have also included ideas on where else you can find the image, at a price to suit every budget.
So in reverse order, let's have a look at the top 5 most wanted Jack Vettriano limited edition prints.

The stunning Dancer For Money was originally released as a silkscreen Limited Edition Print in 2000 and has been highly sought after ever since. 275 prints were released in this edition and they were often bought alongside The Letter.
In 2018 Vettriano started his greatest hits series and its no surprise that Dancer For Money was the first image to be featured. This stunning Premium Limited Edition Print is the same size as the original and has the same frame. There is no glass, instead the image is lacquered and the whole effect is more like the original painting. Only 50 of these prints were released and are highly desirable.

Jack Vettriano said of For My Lover - "I love the ritual that we go through before we go on a date, or used to go through before I went on a date....She's had a bath, she's painting her nails and is wearing the red that he likes."
