Artist on £500 000 a year drops Art in Motion as distributor

Here in New Zealand we are at the receiving end of Jack Vettriano's decision to drop his Canadian distributor Art in Motion in favour of setting up his own publishing company.  Some of New Zealand's best selling imported prints are by Vettriano - eg The Singing Butler, Elegy for a Dead Admiral and Dance Me to the End of Love and these popular prints are now suddenly no longer available.

Just like a band who dumps their record label so they can have complete creative free reign on their next album we wonder whether this short-sighted decision portends a steep decline in the fortunes of this artist...  We have only two or three copies of the prints shown in the Jack Vettriano gallery left as there is now no distributor for this artist in Australasia.
