Bob Dylan, who has been painting since the 1960s (he created the cover of the Band's Music From Big Pink) will have new paintings and drawings on display at Denmark's Statens Museum for Kunst 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. See five "Brazil Series" paintings, plus earlier artwork by Dylan, in this gallery.
