The Singing Butler is an oil-on-canvas painting made by Scottish artist Jack Vettriano in 1992. It sold at auction in 2004 for £744,800, which was the record at the time for any Scottish painting, and for any painting ever sold in Scotland. It depicts a couple dancing on the damp sand of a beach with grey skies above a low horizon. Two attendants to the left and right, a maid and a butler hold up umbrellas against the weather. The dancers wear evening dress: a dinner jacket, and a red ball gown; the woman appears to have bare feet. The butler is also formally dressed, while the maid wears a white apron and clutches her hat.
