Bob Dylan Art Show To Open Next Month In London

A collection of never-before-seen artwork by Bob Dylan is set to go on display next month at the National Portrait Gallery in London. The set, dubbed "Bob Dylan: Face Value," includes 12 pieces created by the legendary songwriter.

The series includes a mix of real-life and imagined characters, created in both pastels and oil paint. Art historian John Elderfield told Rolling Stone that the works are the "products of the same extraordinary, inventive imagination" that created his legendary song catalogue.

"Bob Dylan is one of the most influential cultural figures of our time," director of the National Portrait Gallery Sandy Nairne added. "He has always created a highly visual world either with his words or music, or in paints and pastels."
