Bob Dylan: The Brazil Series

Bob Dylan: The Brazil Series

Bob Dylan, who has been painting since the 1960s, will have new paintings and drawings on display at The National Gallery of Denmark September 4th through January 30th.  “It was an honor to be asked and a thrilling challenge,” Dylan said in a statement about the collection, called Brazil Series, which he created exclusively for the museum.  “I chose Brazil as a subject because I have been there many times and I like the atmosphere.”

Inspired by early 20th century American realism and painters like Matisse, Dylan depicts politicians, gamblers, wine growers, and other denizens of Brazil.  The exhibit will feature 40 acrylic paintings and eight drawings.  View five of the Brazil Series paintings, plus earlier artwork by Dylan, in the gallery below:
