A vision of America: Bob ‘Dylan’s London art show

0

LONDON: Bob Dylan, music legend and Nobel laureate, is also a prolific painter whose works depicting the landscapes and culture of the United States are now the focus of a major London exhibition. Around 200 paintings by the US singer-songwriter, produced by the 75-year-old in the last two years, are on show from Saturday at the Halcyon Gallery in the British capital’s plush Mayfair district. The collection of oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings reveals a different side to Robert Allen Zimmerman, an icon of 20th century US popular music, whose poetic lyrics earned him the Nobel Prize for literature last month, to much surprise. Dylan announced last week that he would travel to Stockholm to receive the prize, making the timing of this exhibition all the more apt.
